The RSPB invites you to
the Great Get Together

June 2017 On 16-18 June 2017, the RSPB will be supporting ‘The Great Get Together’, which marks the one year anniversary of the death of MP Jo Cox.
The idea for The Great Get Together is about bringing communities together to celebrate what we have in common. Around the country, people will be coming together to enjoy the things that Jo Cox loved the most – being with friends and family and spending time in the great outdoors.

“You are invited to come and join us and share in our fantastic natural world and wildlife as we come together to enjoy the great outdoors. By celebrating our natural world and bringing people together we will inspire the next generation as part of a series of events that will be a fitting tribute to the passion and enthusiasm for life that Jo Cox will be remembered for”, said Mike Clarke, the RSPB's Chief Executive. 

The Great Get Together is being organised by the Jo Cox Foundation and is already being supported by a wide range of organisations, individuals and communities.

The celebration is expected to be the biggest expression of national unity since the Diamond Jubilee. Events being planned include street parties, BBQs, picnics, coffee mornings, tea parties and iftars.

Farewell to train tickets

Tickets against a steam train

It had to come of course. First, there were those lovely little oblong hard cardboard tickets with lots of writing all over them; then there were the flimsy paper tickets with vague print on them. Now finally, the trains are going paperless.
