A food van will also be in attendance on the day offering hot sandwiches for a small donation.

We hope you can make it!

The Big Lunch is the UK’s annual get-together for neighbours and communities, with millions of people coming together for a few hours of friendship, food and fun. It connects people and encourages friendlier, safer communities where people start to share more – conversations, ideas, skills, resources and friendship.

If you have any questions, please contact your Neighbourhood Coordinators:

Lucy Atkin on 07540 967 840 or or Brian Fearn on 07734 597 988 or
