The Great Get Together in Wilmslow

On 17th June, Transition Wilmslow joined forces with Wilmslow Quakers, Cycle Wilmslow and the Artisan Market to put on The Great Wilmslow Get Together. This was one of many events that took place that weekend to remember Jo Cox MP. Over 100 stall holders entered into the spirit of the day, many wearing the red and white gingham theme, and decorating their displays. A Great Wilmslow Family Bike Ride including cyclists  from 8 to over 80 took place in the afternoon. The day engendered a spirit of love and peace and hope for our communities to go forward in harmony and understanding. Visitors to our stall signed a book which will be sent to the Jo Cox Foundation (https://www.jocoxfoundation.org) and took photos with messages reflecting Jo Cox’s words: “We have more in common than that which divides us”. Thank you to everyone who came along and in particular to Denise and all the stall holders on the Market who helped to make it such a lovely community event. Special mention for Hoopers who transformed one of their windows! Messages 25A full set of photos are on our Community Connections page.
