On Sunday 18 June, local MP Jeremy Quin joined members and guests for service and lunch at Horsham’s Unitarian Church to support the national ‘Great Get Together’ programme.

With events at over 110,000 religious and secular locations throughout the UK the ‘Great Get Together’ programme aimed to remember and to celebrate the principles of tolerance, compassion and inclusiveness embraced and promoted by Jo Cox, the MP for Batley and Spen who was murdered for her ideals on 16 June 2015 by Nazi sympathiser Thomas Mair.

Under the slogan “We have more in common than that which divides us” the day of remembrance and celebration was promoted by the Jo Cox Foundation, established with the support of Jo’s husband, Brendan Cox, to advance the causes and values she had espoused and to highlight the issues she cared about so deeply – from the plight of innocent civilians in Syria to the despair caused by loneliness and social isolation in the UK.
