  • Big Picnic in the sun…

    We had a lovely day on Sunday 18th July, with Buckfastleigh’s (and the country’s) second ‘Big Lunch’  Big Picnic in the Park at the Orchard Millennium green, organised by Andy and Theo of Buck The Trend.

    The sun shone most of the afternoon and, unlike last year, we had no need of the gazebo, except to keep the sun off the heads of the toddlers.

    Everyone brought food to share, including home-grown vegetables, and we had a fine time eating, talking, and playing games together.

    In Buck the Trend, we believe that community events like these are important to help build a closer, more resilient community which works and has fun together locally. Let’s help make this an annual Buckfastleigh institution and join up next year around the same time…
