The Great Get Together 2018 @ Village Green
Jun 23 @ 12:30 pm – 2:30 pm

On 16th June 2016 MP Jo Cox was brutally murdered by a man in the name of nationalism in her Batley constituency.

Jo Cox

The “Great Get Together” has become an annual event inspired by Jo. It is now being held each year on or around June 22nd – which was her birthday. Organisers believe there is a groundswell of people who reject divisive politics and simply want to bring our communities together and celebrate all that unites us. This is our chance to join in.

Ruddington’s “Great Get Together” is being organised by our Parish Council and will be on Saturday June 23rd both on The Green and in St Peter’s Rooms. There will be live singers in St Peter’s Rooms between 2.00pm and 4.00pm.

On The Green people are invited to just to go along with a picnic, games, etc from 12.30pm to 3.30pm.

Of course absolutely anyone and everyone who wishes to respectfully celebrate Jo’s legacy is most welcome.

“We are far more united and have far more in common with each other than things that divide us.” Jo Cox.

Rattle, Rhyme and Roll is a free half an hour fun session with babies and toddlers.

Organisers, Inspire, say: “It’s amazing how early babies respond to songs and music. The rhymes and rhythm also help with language development.”

Sessions are about half an hour and are every 2nd Tuesday (except in August) at the newly refurbished Ruddington Library.

These are a guided health walks every Wednesday at 10.30am, starting at the education centre in the Country Park. The route varies from week to week around the park, usually no longer than 2 miles. The walk leader will adapt the route to suit the walkers – with a choice of walks to match your fitness and level of ability: a 30 minute shorter walk around the lake: or a longer walk of up to an hour.
