Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall arrived at the Mead Community Primary School in Trowbridge, Wiltshire, this afternoon to participate in Big Lunch. Established in 2009 Big Lunch’s purpose is:
“…to get as many people as possible across the whole of the United Kingdom to have lunch with their neighbors once a year in a simple act of community, friendship and fun.
A Big Lunch can be anything from a few neighbors getting together in the garden or on the street, to a full-blown street party with food, music and decoration that quite literally stops the traffic.”
Now, that’s a brilliant idea and sounds like fun. 🙂 Anyway, for more information about today’s event as well as to watch videos and view photos please click the links below:
