A bit of quick organising and enthusiasm from Wanstead resident Lisa Scott is resulting in a huge communal picnic on Christchurch Green this Sunday afternoon.

“The Big Lunch is a very simple idea from the Eden Project – www.thebiglunch.com – and the aim is to get as many people as possible across the whole of the UK to have lunch with their neighbours in a simple act of community, friendship and fun.
The Big Lunch Picnic will take place on Christchurch Green in Wanstead from Midday – 4pm. The picnic aims to bring together the local community, celebrate what is great about Wanstead and have some fun on a Sunday afternoon. This Big Lunch Picnic will have a local and green theme and Wanstead residents are encouraged to bring along their best seasonal dish to share, a big rug to sit on, games etc and their own plates, cutlery and cups to reduce waste and the clear up after. The picnic will start at 1pm with activities after.
We do need locals to help out, so if you have a few hours to spare or anything else that will help to make the picnic a huge success, please e-mail Lisa on firstname.lastname@example.org with offers of help or any questions.
