The Great Get Together

We had beautiful summer weather on Saturday 17th June for our Great Get Together in the Quaker Burial Ground and Community Orchard. Over 60 people brought food to share with neighbours and friends.

The classical quartet Amici Cantores impressed us all with their beautiful singing voices.

Many people helped set up and clear, make flat bread pizzas and kebabs, coffees and teas. (Apologies for the picture: if anyone knows how to rotate it, website editor would be delighted to be told!)

125 of donations went to the Jo Cox foundation, and 20 was raised for the garden. The murder of Jo Cox was a terrible tragedy but her community spirit lives on.
