Does anyone else remember the fun of the Jubilee street parties? Well a friend of mine, Gwion Thorpe, is the Wales organiser for The Big Lunch, run by the Eden Project and funded by the Big Lottery. Since starting in 2009, thousands of Big Lunches have taken place across Wales and the rest of the UK. The date for this year’s event is Sunday 7th June 2015.
This June millions of people will come together for The Big Lunch, the UK’s annual get together for neighbours. It’s a simple idea to get as many people as possible across the UK to come together in their shared spaces in a simple act of community, friendship and fun.
You’re invited by Gwion to hold one in your street or area in Abergele and surrounds and bring your local community together: “If everyone brings a dish or some decorations and activities, you have yourself a Big Lunch! ”
To find out more, to get a Big Lunch Pack or to register your interest, go to www.thebiglunch.com or call 0845 850 8181.
