THOUSANDS tucked into grub with their neighbours across Croydon at the sixth annual Big Lunch last Sunday.
There were a number of events organised, with one of the biggest taking place at Trumble Gardens in Thornton Heath.
Exchange Square in Croydon, Edward Road in Addiscombe, Whitworth Road in South Norwood and Broom Road in Shirley all held feasts of their own too.
Andrea Wallace, organiser in Vicarage Road, Waddon, said: "It's about developing a sense of community and being there for each other.
"Our event today was jam-packed with activities including Zumba, a bucking bronco competition, face painting, a bouncy castle, a performance from UFO Steelband as well as a visit from Irish dancers who performed and then taught people some key steps of Irish dancing."
The Big Lunch, now in its sixth year, is led by the Eden Project and funded by the Big Lottery Fund.
A Big Lunch can still be organised until the end of June on a date to fit your community. For more information, visit www.thebiglunch.com
