Sunday 2 June was The Big Lunch. For some people the idea of mingling with their neighbours over some food and a glass or two of wine would be their ideal of hell. However, I love it. We live in quite a long road which is divided into 3 sections. You tend to know the people in your section but do not mix with the others. The Big Lunch is the perfect opportunity to meet people you might just nod to in passing. This year the weather was glorious. We had games for the children and two bands played to keep us entertained. Bunting is threaded through first floor windows and there is very much a friendly feel to the whole event. I have just been looking at the photographs that have been posted on Facebook. Everyone seems to be having a good time. It is great the way such a simple event can bring people together. Roll on 2014!
