Not sure if anyone's seen this, but its a lovely idea from the eden project -trying to get neighbours and communities together over a spot of lunch and local food. You can register your own lunch on your street and then rally round to get the street involved. Its a national event. I've registered Hewitt, be great if we could get a load of lunches happening in Harringay. Just click on and type in your postcode and either join or set one up.
We couldnt get to last Fridays meeting... hope it was fruitful. But either Sarah or I will be at the meeting this Wednesday. Any jobs need doing beforehand?
I hope im not jumping the gun by circulating this - some of these things may already be in hand or are organised already. Here's just a few ideas to get things rolling for kit needed, and event suggestions. Feel free to add event suggestions - but remember that people will be needed to initiate them on the day... perhaps the best thing you can add to the event is your own activity to make the day a great success
