The Great Get Together shows we have more in common than divides us

The Great Get Together are events and street parties happening up and down the country this weekend which aim to bring people and communities together to celebrate all that we have in common.

These community events are inspired by a former parliamentary colleague of mine, Jo Cox, who was killed on June 16 last year. Jo always believed "we have far more in common than that which divides us" - something I thoroughly agree with.

There are some fantastic Great Get Together events happening in Cardiff including some in Cardiff West. This event here in Canton is being run by local businesses including St. Canna's Ale House, The Apothecary, Cardiff, Crafty Devil Brewing, Venn School of Sewing, Cherrybomb Tattoo Studio, Peartree Languages, Calabrisella Cardiff, Fair Do's/Siopa Teg CIC and The Canton.

I will be attending, so why not come along? Get together, have some fun and show we have more in common than divides us!
