As part of the national event called the ‘Great Get Together’ (https://www.greatgettogether.org/) which invites local communities to celebrate the life and work of Jo Cox MP Helen Lambert, Minister of Trinity Church is organising a Picnic on Saturday 17th June between 3 – 7pm in Micklefield Park. Jo believed in communities coming together and uniting – what better way than a picnic in a park?
The invitation is open to all in the community to come to the park to enjoy an afternoon of live music from local bands and two local choirs (including Rawdon Littlemoor Sing and Sing group) , dancing with a local ceilidh group and an old fashioned children sports day.
People will also have an opportunity to sponsor red tulip bulbs which will then be planted in the autumn on
Littlemoor to remind us all of the importance of community.
What better a way to remember a woman who said; “While we celebrate our diversity, what surprises me
time and time again as I travel around the constituency is that we are far more united and have far more in
common with each other than things that divide us.”
Hopefully we will enjoy good weather and as many people as possible will support this project and that together we can celebrate love, family and community.

This week, 15th – 19th May, sees National Walk to School week and many of our schools are taking part to celebrate the many benefits that walking brings.
A generation ago over 70% of us walked to school but today it’s less than half. We know that walking to school makes children feel healthier and happier and do better in class while reducing congestion and pollution outside the school gates.
We know that many parents are pressed for time but if you are able to park a little further away from the school as even walking a reasonably short distance can help to make a difference and it can also help children to develop those important road safety skills.
Good luck and good health.
