The Great Get Together is a national series of events designed to bring local communities together to celebrate the life of Jo Cox.
Join us for a picnic in Moulton Public Gardens from noon. There’ll be live music, a bouncy castle, sumo suits but most of all a chance for the whole community to get together and spend decent time together. We live such busy lives and rarely slow down like this. Come and join us.
Here’s what Archbishop Justin Welby says about the day.
The Great Get Together is an excellent opportunity for all of us to strengthen the ties that bind us – as local communities and as a country – and to practice our values of hospitality, welcome and generosity, which are a gift that the followers of Jesus Christ can model for the benefit of our wider society.
The Great Get Together is a fitting tribute to the life and legacy of Jo Cox MP, her public service and her commitment to the inclusion and flourishing of all people in society.
So I encourage you wholeheartedly to host a Great Get Together in your community and to do so in partnership with Near Neighbours, whose inspiring work has enabled local communities across the country to work and live together effectively.
