Pop-up park coming to Canary Wharf for campaign to reclaim lunch hours

A pop-up park is coming to Canary Wharf as part of a campaign to encourage people to “reclaim their lunch hours”.

Marks and Spencer is urging workers to parks touring the country this summer aimed at stopping people dining “al desko”.

Billed as a green oasis of calm, the site will include an M&S shop, and even a giant Jenga game for workers to get involved in.

The project follows research showing that more than half of Brits do not take regular lunch breaks at work.

The park will be open daily from 10am from July 31 to August 2.
