January is the perfect time to remind us all about The Big Lunch 2019.This year the Big Lunch is on the first weekend in June – that is, on 1 and 2 June so please put that in your new diaries and calendars.
The Big Lunch is an annual event initiated by The Eden Project. The Big Lunch is about millions of people all over Cornwall and all over the country getting together to share food, have fun and get to know each other better. It’s a simple idea – that for a few glorious hours, cars stop, shyness stops and neighbours come together to meet. Its a great idea to help bring our communities closer together, and we can do our bit too to help tackle loneliness which is such a big issue that we have a WI national resolution on it.
Every year, over 6 million people take to their streets, gardens and neighbourhoods to join in for a few hours of community, friendship and fun – join in!
The weather may be a bit damp and dull at the moment, but we’re already starting to get excited about fun this summer in The Big Lunch 2019.
The Eden Project came to our annual meeting in November to tell us a bit about this.
For more information, visit thebiglunch.com for ideas and inspiration on how you can bring your community closer together in 2019! And if you have not got one already order your new Big Lunch pack.
Next, we will send you a short new film to watch.
