Big Lunch

Sunday 19th July, 1-3pm, Broadwater Farm Community Centre

On Sunday 19th July 2009, The Big Lunch (an Eden Project initiative) is inviting 61 million people across the UK to simultaneously sit down to eat lunch with their neighbours, as a simple act of community.

The aim is to give people the tools to strengthen their communities through activities such as neighbourhood-watch; improving local amenities, taking care of the elderly or disabled; making imaginative improvements to the local environment and sharing resources. 

Haringey Council (Neighbourhood Management) is facilitating a Big Lunch on the green space of the Broadwater Farm Community Centre.  You, and members of your group, are warmly invited.
