The Great Get Together – Love Congresbury – 16th, 17th & 18th June

The Great Get Together

The Great Get Together – in honour of Jo Cox

A Whole Weekend of Fun!

Founded in 2008, Love Congresbury is an annual event to bring people together to celebrate and bless our community. This happens in two ways:

  1. Party in the Paddock. every year we get together on the Paddock at St Andrew’s Church to have some fun, share a picnic and enjoy the entertainment.
  2. ARK, Acts of Random Kindness. At this Bi-annual, two day event, groups of volunteers from the community help others within the village with ‘odd jobs’. This not only allows people to help each other but also allows people to ask for help.

We ask you provide tools and materials where you can, If you aren’t able to then do let us know and we’ll try to send a volunteer with their own. We endeavour to achieve every job requested. They are allocated on a first come first serve basis and are dependent on the capabilities of our volunteers.

The more volunteers we have, the more people we can help!
