Thanks to everyone who came to our Big L(a)unch on Sunday 7 June – it was a great success including food and fun in the sun, a play street, 30 new Members, site visits, fundraising for Nepal and over 250 visitors over the course of the day
Tying in with Big Lunches around the UK and to celebrate our official launch now we have the lease, we decided to organise a street party and site open day at 136 Earlham Grove. Headed up by Steering Group Member Isobel Matheson, we managed to close off the street around the site and inspire over 250 local residents, neighbour, supporters and friends to visit the garden, bring food to share, buy plants and generally make merry in the sun.
It was a wonderful day, not least for all the hard work that went into the event including liaising with the council to close the street, supervising safe visits to the garden site, preparing and serving food, running kids activities and organising a plant sale in aid of Nepal.
See below for some images of the day – we'll be posting more in our gallery soon plus check our Facebook and Twitter sites for regular updates of this and other events and happenings.
Thanks again to everyone who helped and came along – we can't wait to see you in the garden soon!
