Big Lunch in NR2 – 18 July 2009

Small beginnings made for a great party. First there was one- she registered on the BIG LUNCH website and talked to a friend; then there were two- they made a slip asking if anyone was interested and put them through all the letterboxes on Connaught Road inviting us to a meeting, and caught people in the street who couldn't say no! Then there were 5 - and with one offering to do poster invites and put them on all the trees, and one with an awning to put up over the pavement, and one with tables and chairs, and all of us saying we would be there.

We were off. There was one moment at 1pm- our starting time when we wondered if it would just be us, but then everyone started to arrive and about 50 people came and shared food and talked and found old connections and new connections, neighbours who had been there for 30 years and others just moving in, we had musicians playing and the sun shone and we all thought we'll do this again.
