Hi - this is relevant for you wherever you live
The Big Lunch is happening again for the second year – on SUNDAY 18th July. It is a national one- day get together with your neighbours. It can be anything from a simple lunch to a full-blown street party with DJs and lots of food and drink.
More information from: http://www.thebiglunch.com/what-is-the-big-lunch/index.php You just have to type in your own postcode, and it will show you where the nearest Big Lunch parties are to you.
The first year, in 2009, there was just one in the Bellenden area, in Bellenden Road. This year there are several more see here for the latest list: http://www.bellenden.net/biglunch See here for some pictures and reports from last year: http://www.bellenden.net/category/road/bellenden-big-lunch
There are also Big Lunches in other parts of Peckham, Nunhead, East Dulwich and Camberwell, and elsewhere in Southwark. If you work here but live somewhere else there will no doubt be some near you!
To find out more, to make contact or to sign up with any in your own area go to: http://www.thebiglunch.com/map/find-a-big-lunch.php and type in your postcode, and follow the links to send a message to the organiser.
And you can also just turn up, preferably with something to add to the party! They are great fun, and a fantastic revival of the street party.
