Following on from a successful picnic in 2010 as part of People United’s We All Do Good Things project, the 2011 event was organised by Herne Bay in Bloom, under the guidance of People United.
On the day over 1,000 people attended the Giant Picnic. Visitors had the opportunity to take part in 30 different free activities for all ages, including street theatre, dancing to a live band, and music workshops. The picnic brought together 27 different community groups and organisations working in the Canterbury district however most were from Herne Bay. 30+ volunteers supported the event.
