Residents from Montague Park got together on Buckhurst Meadows for a barbecue, a spot of socialising and some fun.
They also enjoyed a juicing bike, games, craft tent, and balancing scooters for all ages. Parents and children from the primary school opening on the development this autumn met up and made new friends.
The Big Lunch is an annual national event started by the Eden Project, which aims to get as many people as possible in June to have lunch with their neighbours in a simple act of community, friendship and fun.
Wokingham Borough Council’s engagement team organised the Montague Park event in partnership with Churches Together, My Journey Wokingham, Floreat Montague Park, Tesco, and David Wilson.
Since starting in 2009 thousands of Big Lunches have been held in all types of communities. Last year 7.29 million people took to their streets, gardens and community spaces for the event.
This was the second Big Lunch at Montague Park.
