Day 17 – The Great Get Together

For Day 17 of 30 days Wild I attended my local ‘Great Get Together’.

The Great Get Together was set up in memory of Jo Cox, the MP who was murdered one year ago.

In Jo Cox’s first speech to Parliament she said ‘We are far more united and have far more in common than that which divides us’.

Jo’s husband Brendan Cox set up the idea of people getting together with their neighbours to celebrate what we have in common.

All around the country, this weekend, there will be BBQ’s, garden parties, coffee mornings, street parties, picnics and just generally getting to know your neighbours.

Big thank you to Jane for organising our local Great Get Together and it was great to see new people, people I haven’t seen for a while, as well as people I see most days.
