By Katia Harston, Chief Reporter Friday 14th March 2014

FANCY getting to know your neighbours a little better?

Organisers for The Big Lunch, the biggest annual get-together for neighbours, want Barnsley residents to join thousands of communities across the country who will be holding local events and street parties on Sunday, June 1.

Now in its sixth year, the simple idea aims to provide neighbours with an opportunity to get to know one another better.

For those wanting to get involved, free packs are now available from These include invitations and posters as well as seeds, bunting templates and an inspiration booklet with ideas and information on how to get started.
