This Sunday millions of people across the UK will come together for The Big Lunch, the annual get together for neighbours. It’s a simple idea from the Eden Project, made possible by the Big Lottery, to get as many people as possible across the UK to have lunch with their neighbours once a year in a simple act of community, friendship and fun.
There are loads of Big Lunches taking place in and around Cardiff this weekend, from small, private events in streets and back gardens to big, public events like the Shelley Garden Food Festival in Roath, so make sure you get involved if there’s one happening near you.
It’s also not too late to organise your own Big Lunch. FREE resource packs are still available from http://www.thebiglunch.com or by calling 0845 850 818. The pack is full of useful resources and a sprinkling of inspiration and all the materials are undated, so if 1 June is a bit too soon or doesn’t suit no worries, have it on a day that suits you and your community best.
Get your mates together, meet your neighbours, celebrate the diversity of our lovely city or simply share a beer and a bite to eat with those closest to you. #TheBigLunch
