The event was held as part of volunteer's week on Saturday 8th of June in Northbay Hall in Barra. The hall had been specially decorated with hand stitched bunting supplied by the Barra Bunting Project. So all that was left to do on the day was to bring along a dish and enjoy the company of friends and neighbours.


Around twenty five people attended and the dishes they brought made up a wonderful cold buffet with something for everyone. Volunteer Martha MacDonald said; "This is such a good idea, so simple; everyone just comes along for lunch. I don't know why we didn't think of it sooner! It is so important to make some time to just sit and talk to neighbours."


As the afternoon came to anend there were calls of 'when's the next one', and local residents vow to make it a bigger event next year.
