On the 17th June 2017, our community pulled together and held a free event inspired by Jo Cox, called the The Wick Village Great Get Together.
Organised by the WIC Team and supported by the Wick Village Traders Association the event was part of the #GreatGetTogether weekend in memory of Jo Cox. The friends and family of Jo, who was sadly killed on 16th June 2016, came up with the idea to hold neighbourhood celebrations across the UK. The idea was simple, they wanted communities to get together, share food and celebrate all that they have in common.
We all agreed the idea was brilliant and so with the help of some local traders we held a Community Cream Tea Party outside the Wick Village Hall.
