Neighbours Will Eat & Meet This Weekend
The third Big Lunch will have over 13 roads closed in the borough
The council has been asked to close 13 roads on June 5 for street parties, with many others expected to be held in local parks, schools, housing estates, pubs, bars, homes and gardens. A further nine road closure applications have been made for later in June and July.
The event was launched in Wandsworth in May by Mayor of London Boris Johnson, leader of the council Ravi Govindia, London street party champion Barbara Windsor, Wandsworth street party champion Anthony Worrall Thompson and other celebrities.
Councillor Govindia said:
"After a truly spectacular array of parties on Royal Wedding day, the people of Wandsworth look set to do the borough proud again. We're lucky to have some strong and vibrant local communities in Wandsworth, and events like this help bring people even closer together. That's why we work so hard to make organising a street party as quick and easy as possible."
