A fitting tribute and celebration of Jo Cox MP life was held tonight (Wednesday 22 June 2016) in Guildhall Square, on what would have been Jo’s 42nd birthday.
Local people gathered in Victoria Park for a short ceremony then headed through to Guildhall Square to share a picnic.
Joining the event I was reminded of Jo’s maiden speech:
“We are far more united and have far more in common with each other than things that divide us.”
As we remember her passion to create a better world, in her honour, we should all recommit ourselves to that task.
