A COMMUNAL picnic will be held in Otley Town Centre this weekend.

Hosted by Otley Welcomes, the Otley Great Get Together takes place in the Market Square from 1pm to 3pm on Sunday, June 17.

It is part of a national event to commemorate the anniversary of the death of MP Jo Cox, and celebrate her campaigns.

A spokesman for Otley Welcomes said: "We invite all residents to come along and bring their picnics and something for the sharing table.

"There will be fun and games for the children as well as the amazing Shannon and Alex, with their Sticker Art."
