RES­I­DENTS are be­ing in­vited to to­gether and en­joy a com­mu­nity pic­nic.

The Green Back­yard en­vi­ron­ment project, in London Road, Flet­ton, is host­ing the event on Sun­day, June 3 from noon.

The pic­nic is be­ing held to cel­e­brate both this year’s Peter­bor­ough Green Fes­ti­val and the Big Ju­bilee Lunch 2012.

So­phie An­tonelli, from the Green Back­yard, said: “By tak­ing part you’ll be join­ing peo­ple across the UK who will have lunch to­gether in a sim­ple act of com­mu­nity, friend­ship and fun.

“Bring along a dish to share, if pos­si­ble made us­ing lo­cal in­gre­di­ents and add it to the feast for ev­ery­one to en­joy.

“This pic­nic won’t work if peo­ple don’t bring food, so please do try to bring some­thing, even if it is just a bag of crisps.”

As well as the pic­nic there will be mu­sic all day, re­fresh­ments, and the chance to buy some lovely plants for the gar­den or al­lot­ment.

Mean­while, the venue will also be host­ing an event to give res­i­dents a unique look into the fu­ture of Peter­bor­ough on Satur­day, June 9 from 11am.

To cel­e­brate the launch of Peter­bor­ough in Tran­si­tion, a fan­tas­tic day of lo­cal food, drinks, arts, film and mu­sic, all pow­ered by ped­alpow­ered gen­er­a­tors and so­lar pan­els is tak­ing place.

Ms An­tonelli added: “Vis­i­tors will get to dis­cuss a num­ber of in­ter­est­ing is­sues, such as what will Peter­bor­ough be like in 2040? How can Peter­bor­ough sur­vive peak oil and how can we pro­duce more lo­cally grown food?”
