Big Lunch at Southcote GrowAllot

Residents in many streets around Reading participated in this year’s Big Lunch, with 27 streets granted road closures for their parties in June and plenty of other summer events around the area.

Among them was the Southcote GrowAllot’s Florian Gardens Community Allotment where all sort of home-made produces were enjoyed: including fresh bread, chutneys, pasta, quiches, fresh salad made from the allotments own vegetables and cherry wine also made using the allotments cherries from last year. Everyone enjoyed spending a few hours together just sitting around chatting rather than having to tend to the allotment for a change! Another shared lunch was held the following month, and two more are planned for August and September.
