South Manchester comes together to celebrate life of Jo Cox

Over the weekend, events took place across the country to remember the life of Jo Cox and celebrate everything that we have in common as part of the national Great Get Together weekend.

On Saturday Withington Baths hosted a very successful “age friendly” get together and Friends of Ladybarn Park held their family fun day. On Sunday, as part of a community lunch event Jeff helped unveil a beautiful artwork banner at Chorlton Central Church containing Jo’s words “we have more in common than that which divides us”.

Jeff said: “It was fantastic to see Jo’s life being celebrated in such a positive way by our community in south Manchester.

It has been a difficult few weeks for our city but seeing all parts of our diverse community coming together on a sunny Manchester afternoon shows that we will never be divided. Thanks so much to everyone involved.”
