Neighbours' Street Party

This Sunday (19th July), there will be a co-ordinated effort around the country to get neighbours together for a party.

The Big Lunch  is part of the 2012 Olympics Team Green Britain initiative and has a website offering advice on everything from getting permission to close your road, to what food to serve. You can also use the site to find the nearest street party to your house.

While the local council is in support of the party it couldn’t help with funding, but local businesses have stepped up to the challenge.

Restaurants Chez Manny (French), Galapagos (Mediterranean) and Royal Nepalese (Indian) are joining forces to lay on a £5-a-head barbecue, while ­Sambrook’s, a local brewery, will be sorting the beers.

Mental health charity Sound Minds is taking care of the tunes, with reggae and rock bands as well as DJs set to play.

Other locals will run stalls on the day, including a man selling his home-made apple juice and a book stall by local author Isabel Losada, author of The Battersea Park Road to Enlightenment.

The street party is planned for the afternoon but the organisers are already planning the after party and have a ­licence until midnight.
