The Big Lunch: Eating, singing, crafting & socialising in Altrincham

22/07/2010 at 12:52 am (Uncategorized)

The Big Lunch is a fantastic venture from the people who set up the Eden Project. The idea is for people living near each other, but not necessarily usually spending time together, to get to know each other by enjoying a lunch and other sociable activities – such as crafting!

Here we are in Altrincham joining in the fun thanks to Trafford Housing Trust and the lovely Hub community centre. Children and young people were quite taken with the latest Rubbish Revamped CD crafting, the Flying Fish and the Fish on a Stick.

Flying fish ~ the workshop went swimmingly...

Button bracelets were much in demand too – with all ages and both genders.

The icing on the cake – after a delicious *free* barbecue, salads and cakes – was the lovely Vicki Duncan, youth worker extraordinaire, picking up her guitar and singing some tunes. It even stopped raining for a while…

    I just wanted to give a massive thank you to Danielle Lowy and her colleague who came along to the Hub on the 18th July. The workshops were a massive success, the young people were engaged and the feedback was fantastic. The adults that came along were as pleased as the young people as it’s very apparent that Rubbish Revamped is not just for children but adults can also get involved.

    I have no doubt in my mind that Danielle will be coming to many more of THT events and would encourage anyone considering a workshop to go on ahead and book, you won’t be disappointed!!!!!
