"We have more in common than that which divides us"

Jo Cox

The Great Get Together is a community event that will be held on the weekend of the 20-21st June to mark the anniversary of Jo's birthday. We're asking people to throw a get-together - it could be big or small, a street party or just sharing cake with friends and neighbours - and to use it as a chance to enjoy being together and celebrate what we have in common. 

We hope this can be a chance to bring our communities closer together. Jo's killing was designed to divide us and we can think of no better response than an anniversary that brings us closer together to celebrate all that we have in common. 

The Ilkley Street Party is organised by residents in Ilkley, with Ilkley Good Neighbours and the University of the 3rd Age
