Heckmondwike and Spen to remember Jo Cox with family get togethers

An event was also held at Academy Day Nursery in Rise Park today (Saturday), where around 100 people enjoyed the sun and an array of activities for all the family.

Nicola Sturgeon has urged people to unite in the face of terrorism at an event marking the anniversary of the murder of Labour MP Jo Cox.

Jo Cox was campaigner on issues relating to the Syrian Civil War, and founded and chaired the all-party parliamentary group Friends of Syria.

The award's prestige reflects Mr Kenny's selflessness as he tried, vainly, to stop the neo-Nazi Thomas Mair from attacking the Batley and Spen MP outside a constituency surgery in Birstall a year ago.

Mr Cox told Sky News that in keeping with his wife's message of unity the idea is to "celebrate the things that bind us together".

Mrs Leadbeater said the anniversary of Mrs Cox's death would be "difficult" for the family but they were attending a number of community events in her honour.

Prominent religious leaders are among the 117,000 people who have signed up to take part in the Great Get Together, including the Archbishops of Canterbury and York.

In her maiden speech to Parliament Mrs Cox said: "We have more in common that what divides us".

"We will not go back to a "them and us" culture where distrust and hate exist and the best way to help end prejudice is by talking to each other and understanding our various communities".

Mr Parmar himself came to Bolton from Nairobi, Kenya, almost 50 years ago, and said how important it was to support people and groups who might not otherwise easily integrate into the community.

He was later handed a whole-life prison sentence for her murder.

"We need to stand together and show the people who want to divide us that we are united".

"Politics at the moment is so divisive. The important thing is that it will be a lot of fun, and will, hopefully, play its part in reminding us all of the values that make this country such a great place to live".

Head to The Great Get Together's website for more info.

"That shock was personal for politicians but it was profound I think for all of us because it was a disgusting, violent act, like so much else that happens in the world, and made us focus on the things that divide people rather than the things that bring us together".
