Episode 07 – the Big Lunch

Rich and Lynsey join, Lowri, Sian and Katie (Team Wales) for the first leg of the Big Lunch community walk – the start of an epic two week walk across Wales to meet the people and communities coming together in June for food, friendship and fun!

The Eden Project, Big Lunch is about millions of people getting together to share food, have fun and get to know each other better.  It’s a simple idea – that for a few glorious hours, cars stop, shyness stops and neighbours come together in the street to meet, greet, share, swap, sing, play and laugh.

1 in 5 people in the UK have never spoken to their neighbours!

But on a more serious note the Big Lunch plays a vital role in reconnecting communities, reducing isolation and helping to create long-term friendships that last beyond each lunch.
