PEOPLE on the Isle of Wight are being urged to get behind The Big Lunch, which returns on Sunday, June 1.
The Lottery-funded Big Lunch was created by the Eden Project and is aimed at bringing together communities.
Sir Tim Smit KBE, Founding Director, Eden Project and co-Founder The Big Lunch said: "The Big Lunch is all about getting together and having fun.
"It doesn’t have to be a big event, even a small get-together in your garden or on your street is a great way to get neighbours talking, sharing conversation, skills, resources, and, of course, the vital ingredient - food."
Free information packs, containing essential information about how to organise an event in your area, as well as bunting templates, are available from www.thebiglunch.com
