Whatever the outcome of the General Election on Thursday, it's clear that more than ever, we need to come together as a community. Up Our Street are supporting Easton Community Centre to organise a Great Get Together event on Saturday 17 June. The Great Get Together is inspired by Jo Cox, the MP who was killed on 16 June last year. The aim is to bring communities together and celebrate all that unites us.
On 17 June there will be lots going on at Easton Community Centre and outside in Owen Square Park. People are encouraged to bring a picnic on the day, and Cafe des Amis will also be open during the day. Plans so far include live music and DJ, a swing dance class, building a cardboard den, facepainting and more. Up Our Street will be there on the day. We'll have some art activities for children while the grown-ups can play our Life Chances game and talk about how we build community.
