Great Get Together 24 June 2018

Highfield Residents Association and All Saints' Church combined their resources to celebrate the Great Get Together, inspired by the late Jo Cox MP, with a Street Party on Sunday 24th June from 11am to 5pm.  All Saints Road was closed to traffic.

Lots of fun filled activities were planned along with morning coffee, a bring and share lunch, live music, street games, teas, and later a pub supper.  It promised to be a day of fun for all ages!

The programme included:
  • 11.30 Street Café – coffee/biscuits
  • 13.00 Celebration Lunch - bring ‘n’ share, we provide drinks
  • 14.30 Street Games - full programme of fun till 5pm
  • 14.30 Open Gardens – visit residents’ gardens
  • 15.00 Afternoon Tea – Teas/cakes in the church gardens
  • 15.00 Mad Marston Hares – great traditional music/song
  • 16.30 Tug of War – kids vs. grown ups!
  • From 18.30 Supper in Butchers Arms – tasty buffet food
We are very happy to report that the Afternoon teas produced the sum of £130 for the Jo Cox foundation.
