THE GREAT GET TOGETHER, 24th June, 1.30pm to 3.30pm at Rouken Glen Park. As a friend of the late Jo Cox, the M.P. who tragically died at the hands of a far right terrorist in 2016, Blair McDougall invites people from our congregation to join in with this event, which took place for the first time last year. In the spirit of Jo’s words that, ‘we have so much more in common than divides us’, we are invited to join people of all faiths and none; all political persuasions and none, bring a picnic and enjoy a game of rounders on the grass near the Pavilion.
