Sax and Rugs and Sausage Rolls!

Almost 200 people flocked to the Park to join their neighbours to share food, drink, and fun, as part of FoSJP's participation in the nationwide event that was this year's The Big Lunch.

Everyone brought along a plate or two of food to share, and there was plenty to go around. Lunchers were entertained by a professional duo, courtesy of FoSJP, playing songs both old and new in a jazz style, and the younger Lunchers made their own entertainment with games and musical instruments.

Although the sky looked threatening, thankfully the rain held off, and the wind wasn't quite strong enough to blow away the marquees!

Many thanks to all the volunteers who helped set up the marquees and clear away afterwards.

Here are some of our Big Lunchers enjoying the day:
