Our neighbours organised a wonderful picnic last Sunday, 18th July 2010, through the Eden Project - see
The idea is that local communities are all over the country organise their own picnics and get-togethers on a particular day, once a year - it is a wonderful way of bringing people together. It is is also ecology-based.
Our neighours organised the event on Wanstead Flats, and there were about 140 people there altogether (both adults and children). Our son Victor played acoustic guitar and sang and others joined in. This included songs for children, such as 'Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star' and country songs. The neighbours that organised it all and invited Victor to play, said that Victor's playing was the highlight for them; that was a lovely surprise for us. Another neighbour of ours, who also composes, and has some material on MySpace, under the name of 'Arthur Dust' was also there, and Victor and him played together a little. The weather was wonderful, there was lots to eat, and in addition there were various games going on, such as the egg and spoon race.
All in all, it was a great day. So, many thanks to our neighbours for organising all of this.
And here are some photos of the whole event.
