BIG LUNCH 2019
REMINDER this SUNDAY
You will have seen the posters all around the streets promoting the 10th Big Lunch. What’s it all about??? Every year for the last decade the corner of Northcote Road and Haliburton Road has been given over to the Big Lunch. It’s a really simple idea. You turn up, with friends and family, and find a place, sit down, and share your lunch with your neighbours and locals. There are activities for children, provided by All Souls’ Church, and we are hoping for some live music; not forgetting the traditional raffle (with fantastic prizes) to pay for the insurance and the cost of closing off the road (see below).
There are no tickets, it costs nothing – you just need to turn up with a smile.
Please note that there is a slight shortage of tables and chairs this year so if you can possibly bring a picnic table if you like nearby this will assist. Also if you are free to help set up there are things to do from about 10.30am on Sunday!
The road closure covers Northcote Road from the junction of Newry Road to the end, and that part of Haliburton Road adjacent to the curtilage of the church. Access to and egress from this area will be limited to emergency vehicles after about 11am until about 5pm. It would be really helpful if you could move your car away from the core area which is more or less the area around the church.

A general warning about people knocking on your door with stories of woe which lead inevitably to requests for money for taxis, Also people who say your roof needs fixing or try to sell you fish (yes, really). If you don’t know the person, it is much more likely that this is one of several known local fraudsters. Don’t be intimidated and do contact the police. These people prey on your goodwill.
