As a result of Good Neighbours' day yesterday, a group of residents on Farleigh Road are organising a Big Lunch on Sunday 19th July.
The Big Lunch is a national initiative which aims to get people sitting down and having lunch together on 19th July - encouraging neighbours to get to know each other and 'put a smile on Britain's face'.
At the meeting last night, we commented that people recognise each other on the street, but don't necessarily know each other - and the Big Lunch is about breaking down that barrier.
If any other streets in Stoke Newington are thinking of planning a Big Lunch event, do let us know.
The next meeting for Farleigh Road is 8th June at 8pm in Metolino Cafe.
