Once again, Knowsley Council is supporting The Big Lunch – a national campaign by the Eden Project to encourage people across the country to have lunch together on Sunday, 1 June 2014.

This annual event encourages local neighbourhoods and communities to organise their own events, with the Big Lunch providing advice and support through their website – http://www.thebiglunch.com/ or telephone The Big Lunch on 0845 850 8181.  This includes decorations, games and recipe ideas to share with your neighbours.

The aim of the campaign is to improve community spirit and community cohesion.  Whilst the Big Lunch is promoting the concept, the onus is on communities to take ownership of the events – by generating support locally and organising the events.

If you are interested in arranging a street party, the council will support and advise you on the process.  For advice and support, call 0151 443 3073.

Over 3.65 million people nationally took part in last year’s event and hopefully this year’s Big Lunch will attract even more people.
