Do you live on Britain's friendliest street? A new campaign to honour areas that display the best community spirit has just launched to mark King Charles III's Coronation — and there are plenty of prizes up for grabs.

Whether you live down a cul-de-sac or in a block of flats, organisers behind the Coronation Big Lunch are searching for a local community that has gone above and beyond to support those around them.

The winners will receive a pollinator-friendly garden designed by The Eden Project, as well as a Coronation Big Lunch hamper (including a £250 Iceland voucher) and £2,500 to support your next community project. Three runners-up will also be rewarded, each receiving a Coronation Big Lunch hamper (including a £100 Iceland voucher) and £1,000 towards a community project.


To enter, simply head to and tell the team why you think your community should win. The competition runs from 1st-30th March.

"Life hasn't been easy these past few years, but friendly, kind communities in the UK have kept us going. A coronation marks an important moment in our shared history," Peter Stewart, chief purpose officer at the Eden Project, told The Metro.

"By honouring the friendliest communities in this coronation year, we shine a light on those people who are collaborating and shaping better futures, crowning them as examples we could emulate.

"The rewards will help communities take the next step in taking their ideas forward to benefit the wider community and by gifting the overall winner a garden, we help that community to connect together and with nature, which we know has huge value for community and individual wellbeing."
