Some of you and your WIs may have joined in The Big Lunch in previous years. Obviously this year things will have to be a bit different, but the Big Lunch spirit is the same.
The Big Lunch is about celebrating community connections and getting to know each other better. Now more than ever, we need to make time for each other but we also need to stay safe, so this year will be the first ever Big Virtual Lunch!
Community spirit is still shining bright, and whether you are a first timer or an old hand, there are lots of ways you can join in, online, on the phone and on your doorstep.
Plan your event for 6-7 June. If you can’t do it then, then organise something for a bit later in the summer.
There are a whole load of resources that you can download to get your neighbours and community talking, celebrate connections and thank those around you. There are games to play, digital invitations to spread the word, and lots of tried and tested ideas from The Big Lunch team.
If you put something together, please send any photos and stories to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also join the conversation on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Don’t forget to use the hashtags #TheBigLunch and #BigVirtualLunch.
