Get together this weekend! The Big Lunch and Great Get-Together

This weekend sees communities all over the country getting together for the annual Big Lunch event, where neighbours get together for a meal, street party or picnic. As well as the Big Lunch, communities are also participating in the Great Get-Together, a national event marking the anniversary of the death of the MP Jo Cox and celebrating her life.

Plenty of communities in Reading are holding events – why not go along to one near you? As well as street parties all over town, in East Reading you can also go to the Newtown Community Day at Orts Road Green on Saturday and the More in Common Picnic in Palmer Park on Sunday, both of which are participating in the Great Get-Together.

Whatever you are doing this weekend, we hope you manage to get out and enjoy it!
