THE BIG LUNCH - JOIN IN! 
Do you want to get to know your neighbours better?
Do you want to live in a community which is friendlier, safer and more connected?
Do you want to get together with friends and neighbours to celebrate your connections as part of the country’s biggest celebration of friendship?
Come to our free, informal workshop and find out how easy it is to do this one **** at a time by joining in THE BIG LUNCH when it brings the country to a standstill on the 1st and 2nd of June this year!
This will be an opportunity to meet like-minded people, hear from experienced Big Lunchers, pick up some useful resources, as well as meet this year's Big Lunch Community Walkers who will have just embarked on a journey across England to celebrate bringing people together. 

                
///// PROGRAMME FOR THE DAY /////
    12-1pm: Big Lunch - snacks, tea, coffee will be provided and attendees are encouraged to bring a little something to share with everyone else in the spirit of the Big Lunch! 
    1-2.30pm: Workshop - meet the community walk team, Q&A, group discussions, exchanging ideas; proposing community stops for the Walk team
    2.30pm: Opportunity to join this year's Big Lunch Community Walk around Eastbourne as we visited the suggested places from the previous session!

Come with a neighbour, or a friend - or just come yourself and enjoy an inspiring couple of hours with other community-minded folk from the area. Children also welcome. If you have any accessibility needs, please get in touch in advance so we can make sure we can best prepare 
We know that great things happen when people get together, so let's make it happen!

We organise Community Camps, national and regional events, as well as stuff like The Big Lunch and a Community Walk. If you believe in the power of connection, get in touch and we can see how we can support you or co-organise events where you are based.
The Big Lunch is about millions of people getting together to share food, have fun and get to know each other better. Every year on the first weekend of June, over 6 million people take to their streets, gardens and neighbourhoods to join in for a few hours of community, friendship and fun!
