The Small Lunch


Yesterday, in the middle of summer, I found myself in the heart of a New England-style development in suburban Surrey enjoying a picnic of Spanish chorizo whilst listening to musicians from Ecuador playing Johnny Mathis' Christmas hit 'When A Child Is Born' on the pan pipes.

Only in Worcester Park.

That aside, the 'Big Lunch' event in Mayflower Park in The Hamptons made for a very pleasant afternoon. The turnout was, to put it politely, modest (perhaps unsurprising as the event was sparsely advertised locally) but neither the low turnout nor the threatening grey clouds prevented those who did turn up from enjoying themselves.

Same again next year, perhaps with a far bigger attendance?
