The Big Lunch

7 June: Croydon Big Lunch

The Big Lunch was a very simple idea started in 2009 by the Eden Project. The aim is to get as many of the 64 million people in the UK as possible to have lunch with their neighbours once a year. The idea grew out of national research showing that people were increasingly feeling isolated from their neighbours and that communities were not developing as they did in the past. Organisers say that while there is a significant minority of communities that are close-knit and act as a beacon for neighbourliness, many of the country’s communities are, at best, anonymous.

Apply to the council to hold a Big Lunch party and arrange for road closures.
