The Great Get Together – 18th June

Categories: Newsletter

It’s always a delight to take part in events which involve the whole community. This year, we’re pleased to be working with a number of local groups to promote The Great Get-Together.

On 18th June, the whole community is invited to join us for a picnic on Tottenham Green – we’ll provide activities for children, a bouncy castle, food stalls, music and  picnic blankets; you provide the food and company! Just turn up and get involved.

 

 

 

 

Not only is this a fun activity for Father’s Day, but it provides an opportunity for us all to come together and show the kind of community we want Tottenham to be. As Archbishop Justin Welby put it:

“We find ourselves today at a complex point in the life of our nation. There are many issues that appear to be pulling us apart, and our political leaders are making difficult decisions about whether or how to move with those forces, or to resist and seek to strengthen the ties that bind us as a society and with the wider world – together – to recognise that “we have far more in common than than that which divides us.”

“The Great Get Together is an excellent opportunity for all of us to strengthen the ties that bind us – as local communities and as a country – and to practice our values of hospitality, welcome and generosity, which are a gift that the followers of Jesus Christ can model for the benefit of our wider society. The Great Get Together is a fitting tribute to the life and legacy of Jo Cox MP, her public service and her commitment to the inclusion and flourishing of all people in society.
