Cheshire East Council is supporting one of the nation's biggest summer events to honour the memory of murdered MP Jo Cox.

The Great Get Together will be held on Saturday and Sunday June 17-18 and the council is encouraging residents across the borough to join together in their communities to share food, conversation and celebrate what we all have in common.

The weekend will mark the first anniversary of Batley and Spen MP Jo's murder, on June 16, 2016. The council has made £15,000 available for community groups to apply for grants of up to £100 to come together and hold street parties.

The council will also organise two community events that weekend, one in Westminster Park, in Crewe, on Saturday, June 17 -- making the link with Westminster in London and the tragic events that took place during the terror attack on March 22 in the capital. The other event will take place in West Park, in Macclesfield, on Sunday, June 18.
