Big Lunch 2015

Last Sunday we had our Big Lunch - once again we were lucky with the weather, it was just warm enough to make this a very pleasant experience again!

Plenty of food appeared magically on our tables and there were many yummy items there for everybody to choose from!

There are some more photos in the Big Lunch 2015 album.

It was so nice to meet some of our neighbours again that I hadn't seen for the whole year since the last Big Lunch (how crazy is that!), and also to meet some new people! As always I didn't manage to speak to everyone I would have liked to.

If you would like to meet up more often in the park, either join us for one of our regular Picnic in the Park events or use the Facebook Forum to post a message to see if anybody wants to join you at another time! (Other ways to connect with local people are to join at the Fitness With Friends or Football sessions.)

Thank you to everybody who planned, helped set up, tidy away, brought along tables and gazebos, played games with the children, and of course to everybody who made it there and help make it such a nice event!

Hope to see you soon again out in the park!
