Following our lobbying for the Council to offer free road closures again – this year for Big Lunch street parties – it's good to see that many are happening this weekend:
Saturday 1 June – afternoon * Newport Road * Lydford Road (from Cardigan Road to Foxhill Road)
Sunday 2 June – afternoon * Baker Street (from Howard Street to Carey Street) * Kenilworth Avenue * St Peters Road (from Clarendon Road to Lennox Road) * Carnarvon Road * Talfourd Avenue * Matlock Road, Caversham * Harrogate Road (from Matlock Road to Buxton Avenue)
Sunday 2 June – evening * Oakley Road (from Albert Road to Kidmore Road)
Also taking part in the Big Lunch is the Sun Street Community Garden in Newtown, which is holding a barbecue on Sunday 2 June between 2pm and 4pm - just bring your food to share.
Good luck to everyone, the weather forecast looks good!
