In a recent poll of 4,000 people undertaken by The Big Lunch, nearly 70% of the population don’t feel they know their neighbours well. Every year since 2009, millions of people across the UK have come together for The Big Lunch on the first weekend of June to celebrate community, positivity and friendship, over lunch and a cuppa. It is an initiative from the Eden Project made possible by the National Lottery that connects people and encourages friendlier, happier and safer neighbourhoods.
