Community can come together
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?”
