The Great Wilmslow Get Together

“We have more in common than that which divides us”. Jo Cox MP

Transition Wilmslow together with Wilmslow Quakers  teamed up with the town’s monthly Artisan Market to put on ‘The Great Wilmslow Get Together’.

Ours was just one of the many ‘Great Get Together’ events which took place throughout the country over the weekend of 16th – 18th June in memory of Jo Cox MP who was fatally attacked in June 2016

Everyone entered into the spirit of the day including the Market stall holders, displaying the official gingham theme in bunting, ribbons, and pennants.  Messages in the comments book at our stall highlighted that we have more in common than that which divides us.  The Family Cycle Ride saw participants ranging in age from 8 to 96 years.

It was felt that the day engendered a spirit of love and peace and hope for our communities to go forward in harmony and understanding.

Thanks are extended to all who helped and participated.
