Big Lunch street parties across Reading in June

Residents from 27 streets in Reading are planning to host street parties in early June as part of The Big Lunch 2016. The aim of the scheme is to get as many people as possible to meet in the streets and have lunch with their neighbours, in a simple act of community, friendship and fun. Why not go along to a party near you and meet your neighbours? Here is the list of this year’s street parties around Reading:

Sunday 5 June: Baker Street, Carnarvon Road, College Road & Culver Road, Coventry Road

Saturday 11 June: Darell Road, Mayfield Drive & Rosendale, Newport Road, Talfourd Avenue

Sunday 12 June: Blenheim Road, Chazey Road, Fawley Road, Harrogate Road, Kearsley Road, Matlock Road, Melrose Ave, Morecambe Avenue, Nire Road, Oakley Road, Queen Street, Recreation Road, Russet Glade, St Andrew’s Road, St Peters Road, Talbot Close, Watlington Street.

There are other off-street Big Lunch events all over town too – for example, if you’re in the Caversham area why not try the Amersham Road Social Saturday on 11 June.
