This is a picture from the Big Lunch and it was organised by Rachel Gilkes (Chutney For Change), Claire Tymon (Blackburn with Darwen Council). In support were Asda, Halifax PLC, Police Cadets and various other organisations. There were several stalls, music, even a few singers to liven up the day. The weather started bit sunny, hazy, and windy, but this didn't dampen the lunch. A surprise visitor attended and he was just passing by with his friend. The newly elected leader Councillor Mohammed Khan (rear 2nd row and 3rd from the right) couldn't let this opportunity pass by. Well done all and thanks for the support!
