With the final details of the lease confirmed and the final documentation just weeks away, we can start planning some official events. First up is the Big Lunch on 7 June 2015
The Big Lunch is a nationwide initiative, dreamt up by the Eden Project. The aim is to get as many people as possible across the whole of the UK to have lunch with their neighbours annually on the first Sunday in June in a simple act of community, friendship and fun. Since starting in 2009, thousands of Big Lunches have taken place in all types of communities. In 2014, 4.83 million people took to their streets, gardens and community spaces for the sixth annual Big Lunch.
This year, we're hosting our very first Big Lunch in the Forest Gate Community Garden and we'd love you to come. Rain or shine, we'll be making merry at 136 Earlham Grove and also hope to organise a Play Street on the road outside at the same time.
It should be great fun and is a great way to meet your neighbours and find out what the garden is all about. We also need some volunteers to help with lunch and festivities so if you have some free time on the day, we'd love to hear from you. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can't wait to see you there!
