Four weeks from the birth May 7 of son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, organizers of St. David’s 8th Annual Big Lunch will again roll out the red, white and blue in recognition of another Royal occasion. The five-piece Hamilton Street Swing has added a lullaby to its set list of 20s, 30s and 40s tunes, to help focus on the theme of this event.
In recent years the Parish of St. David’s, Delta located in Tsawwassen has foregone the usual concept of the parish picnic and have instead adapted the fairly recent British tradition, The Big Lunch. The Big Lunch (BL) is a program of the Eden Project in the UK, funded in part by the British National Lottery and the idea is that for a few hours on a Sunday in early June neighbours get together to have some fun and share a potluck meal together. According to the Eden Project webpage “9.3 million people took to their streets, gardens and neighbourhoods to join in for a few hours of community, friendship and fun (in 2017).”
