The Abbey Gardens Big Lunch 2015

AG-Big-Lunch-2015-blog

The lovely thing about The Big Lunch is that lunch just somehow assembles itself, with just the right mix of dishes for the grill, bakes, salads and sweet things. People wander in: volunteers, friends, neighbours, that too with the variety of the table: all ages, many nationalities and all walks of life.

Our team of young judges (with clipboards, which they insisted-on) for the tastiest and best-presented food gave their awards to Margaret and friends for raising the bar on display and to a first-time Big Lunch visitor to the garden who brought a delicious lemon drizzle cake.

A big thank-you to our judges, to Erwan for manning the grill, to everyone who helped set up and clear up, to Sawmill café for voucher prizes and to our administrator Vicki for spreading the word and organising on the day.
