THANKS to all who came down to the BIG Lunch we had on the Meadow yesterday. Thanks especially to all the helpers (Caitlin, Sinead, Kate, Robin, Colin, Mark and Karen) who helped with the preparations – we had all kinds of weather to deal with sun, rain, high winds. Face painting, coconut hitting, music from a DJ (thanks to a nearby flat for supplying the electricity), BBQs, loads to eat and drink and great chat made up the day. Everyone seamed to have had a great fun time and it was another reason, if one was needed, to save this land from being sold off for flats.
Turnout was just over 100. Land was left just as we found it as well.
Lets hope we’re around next year to have another BIG Lunch!
Thanks to everyone that was there and helped out – I had a fantastic time and it was great to meet such a large number and wide range of interesting people.
PS Special mention to the DJ who provided the tunes all day!
It was a fantastic day and brilliant to see everyone who came out – and brought all that gorgeous food!
I think it was a really amazing day, the turn out of people seemed to really represent the on-going support the local communoity have for their initative. I hope we can have another one at some point soon!
