From the good people of Church Street Caernarfon
Last year, the people from Church Street, Market St, High Street and the two local blocks of retirement flats
came out into the street to meet their neighbours and share a ‘Big Lunch’
together. It was fantastic! We all brought food and drink to share and
sat in the sun enjoying the great company.
We actually got to spend time with neighbours who most of the year we
just say ‘Hello’ to. Older people came out and chatted to the children who
played happily all the afternoon. Nearly four hours was passed talking,
laughing, singing and simply just passing round the good of the human spirit
and we were all reluctant to go home.
As well as decorations and
balloons we had a ‘Community Wishing Line’ where we pegged out our wishes to
our community and an Art board for people to draw on which was crowded with
kids all the time and it left us some fantastic memories – We still have it! We
don’t want to let it disappear! It’s great.
Everyone had a fabulous time
and some wanted to have regular lunches arranged. Now here we are again having another ‘Big
Lunch’ together in 2010. We can’t wait! (18th July)
The Big Lunches were started
by ‘The Eden Project’ in Cornwall to help build a community sprit back into
this wonderful nation of ours.
Join in. Organise a Big Lunch in your street, park,
anywhere all the neighbours can get together.
