The Great Get Together weekend from 16th to 18th June is inspired by Jo Cox, who was killed on 16 June last year. Jo’s family and friends came up with the initiative, and have teamed up with The Big Lunch to encourage communities up and down the country to arrange a get together. Events could be anything from a street party to a coffee morning in your front room. There are lots of ideas and resources to help you plan your Get Together available through the Great Get Together Website. On the website they explain:
A ‘Get Together’ is any gathering of neighbours, friends and those in our communities to celebrate what we have in common. This weekend is inspired by Jo Cox, but we expect people to take part for many different reasons. We hope it provides a reason to reach out to those you might not otherwise, and by building new relationships, create stronger communities”.
