It was a pleasure to join the Great Get Together in Nuttall Park last Sunday, with my family and as one of my first events as the new MP for Bury North.
After recent tragic events in Manchester and London, it is more important than ever for our communities to come together and celebrate, as Jo Cox would say; that we have more in common than that which divides us.
I hope this will not be a one-off event, but a regular chance for us to celebrate the strength in diversity which makes our town and our country so great.
My thanks to the organisers and all residents who attended to make the day so special.
James Frith MP
