The Great Get Together

June 16th 2017 On   June   16th   last   year   Jo   Cox   MP   was   killed,   Jo's   family   want   as   many   people   as   possible   to   get   together   over   the   weekend   of   16th   -   18th June   to   prove   that   we   stand   united   and   reject   divisive   politics,   this   can   be   done   by   simply   bringing   communities   together   to   celebrate   all that   unites   us.   Here   is   your   chance   to   become   involved   locally,   as   we   want   Bere   Regis   to   be   part   of   this   countrywide   celebration   of   all   that   is good within our own community. We   as   a   nation   and   people   locally   are   facing   many   terrible   things:-   the   loss   of   life   in   the   horrendous   tower   block   fire   in   London   ,   terrorist attacks    in    Manchester    and    London.    Much    political    uncertainty.    Many    face    all    sorts    of    personal    battles    such    as    illness    .    poverty    , bereavement. Today   we   ask   you   to   come   together   to   celebrate   all   that   is   good   in   our   community.   At   the   Pop   In   Place   "Great   Get   Together"   10am   until 12noon   where   there   will   be   free   refreshments   coffee,   cakes   and   free   raffle,   entertainment   and   a   warm   welcome   to   all   who   walk   through   the door.

25th June 2017 This   morning   the   Pop   In   Performers presented    a    cheque    to    the    church wardens   for   £1,564.24   for   the   church roof appeal. Thank   you   to   all   of   the   group   who came   along   to   sing   at   the   Service   this morning, Im very proud of you all x
The following letter is from Brendan Cox to all who took part in the Great Get Together . This   weekend   was   like   nothing   I   could   have   imagined.   Thank   you   so   much   for   being   part   of   it,   I’m   humbled   and   so   incredibly   grateful   for   all that you’ve done. Together   we   brought   together   millions   of   people   for   the   biggest   community   celebrations   since   the   Jubilee,   and   powerfully   displayed   that   we have   more   in   common.   I   was   sent   so   many   stories   of   neighbours   meeting   each   other   for   the   first   time,   old   friendships   rekindled   and   cake overload. It   was   really   uplifting   to   see   all   the   powerful   things   that   Jo   stood   for   celebrated   in   such   a   British   way,   with   all   the   imagination   and spontaneity and downright eccentricity that one would expect. And,   perhaps   most   importantly   of   all,   after   being   told   how   divided   we   are,   it   was   joyful   to   see   thousands   upon   thousands   of   photos   of people   across   the   country   celebrating   community   and   togetherness.   Sometimes   we   just   need   an   excuse   to   get   together,   and   when   we   do, it’s clear that there’s much more that unites us, exactly as Jo said. As   I   was   about   to   go   to   bed   on   Sunday   night,   I   saw   the   heartbreaking   news   that   there   had   been   an   attack   outside   a   mosque   in   Finsbury Park.   This   hit   me   personally   particularly   hard   as   the   Mosque   had   hosted   a   get   together   on   Saturday   night   inspired   by   Jo,   and   an   amazing number   of   people   from   the   community   were   there.   Beyond   my   sadness   and   anger,   I   couldn’t   be   more   proud   to   have   built   something   with you that shows all terrorists, no matter where their hate comes from, that they will not divide us and we will not cower. Wherever   we   go   next   with   The   Great   Get   Together,   I   know   that   together   we   can   create   a   platform   to   focus   on   the   things   we   have   in common and bring our communities together. That's a legacy that Jo would have been very proud of. Brendan
