Deptford Big Lunch - diary date and volunteers required!
Ellie has been in touch about the Deptford Big Lunch she is organising on 15th June in Margaret McMillan Park.
That's not 'big lunch' as in the one you have when your boss is paying, or the enormous fry-up that seems appropriate once the hangover finally lifts at about 3pm; it's Big Lunch as in a community get-together intended to bring neighbours together over a plate of curry goat or some summer rolls.
Here's what she says about it:
It is essentially a big community picnic, with free food and arts and crafts for kids, and we are hoping to get lots of creative people down to join in. The idea is that it's a real grassroots community thing. Some local shops have agreed to donate food.
I want anyone to be able to come down and contribute, either by just getting involved, bringing some food or sharing some talents. I want to celebrate all of the wonderful people we have in Deptford.
This is a charity event which is all about connecting with others, sharing food and celebrating the local community.
There will be a barbecue and tasty home made salads made with foods donated by local grocers.
We are also hoping to have face-painting, finger paints and activities for children. All are welcome to come along!
Volunteers are still needed so please get in touch if you can help out in any way.
