Get to know your neighbours with a street party this summer


Frome Town Council is linking up with the Big Lunch initiative. Created by the Eden Project in 2009, the Big Lunch events have grown all across the UK.  We’re inviting and encouraging local people to stage their own street party in order to get know their neighbours and have fun in their street.  This year’s event coincides with the Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations on 12 June.  We have and are continuing to create a pack for residents to guide you through road closures, risk assessments, first aid and insurance etc. as well as ideas and resources for things to do on the day. You can host a street party just for fun – it doesn’t have to be for Her Majesty’s Birthday, a Big Lunch is a chance to get to know your neighbours and is an event everyone can enjoy. Please contact Kate Hellard, Community Projects Officer for more information about how to support or have an event in your street. You can check out the webpage for hosting a street party here.
