Sunday's preacher and Karibuni Children both reminded us of the late Jo Cox MP on the anniversary of her murder by a right wing extremist. Local preacher John Shaw mentioned that he had worked with both Jo and her husband Brendan at Oxfam. For their part, Karibuni Children's Family Fun Day at Fairford Leys coincided with a 120,000 national 'Great Get Together' events around the country in memory of Jo.
On Saturday, the House of Commons' Family Day included the unveiling of a memorial plaque by Jo Cox's children, Cuillin, aged six and four-year old Lejla. The coat of arms designed by her children reflected her love of rivers and mountains and support for women. The caption, "We have more in common", was taken from her famous maiden speech.
