The local community are being asked to support the Big Lunch in Whitehead this weekend.

The event will take place in the gardens of Whitehead Methodist Church on June 12.

The Big Lunch is a simple idea from the Eden Project, supported by the Big Lottery Fund. It aims to get as many people as possible across the whole of the UK to have lunch with their neighbours annually in June in a simple act of community, friendship and fun.

Since starting in 2009, thousands of Big Lunches have taken place in all types of communities.

In 2015, 7.29 million people took to their streets, gardens and community spaces for the seventh annual Big Lunch.

There is no admission charge to the Whitehead Big Lunch, which will feature entertainment for all the family.

Visitors will also get the opportunity to see the recently opened church hall at Whitehead Methodist.
