The aim of Calderdale’s Big Lunches is to get as many people as possible to have lunch with their neighbours annually in a simple act of community, friendship and fun.
The Big Lunch’s website gives more information on the project and provides lots of advice on setting up and running a community Big Lunch.
Big Lunches could be held in community buildings, organisational buildings or even on the street and will ideally be held as near to Sunday 7 June as possible although Public Health will consider supporting events held during the months of May, June and July.
To make sure that Big Lunches are accessible to residents who would benefit most from them, Public Health will be supporting events taking place in the wards of Park, Ovenden, Todmorden, Sowerby Bridge, Town, Illingworth and Mixenden, Warley and Elland.
If you are unsure which ward your event would be held in please click here and enter the postcode of the event location in the tool at bottom of the web page.
