ANGLESEY'S MP Albert Owen is taking part in a community event marking the death of a "true trailblazer and visionary" Jo Cox.

Mr Owen's former Labour colleague, the Batley and Spen Member of Parliament, was murdered on June 16, in 2016.

Since her death, a nationwide initiative the Great Get Together is held annually to bring people together in their communities.

This year, the third Great Get Together will take place from June 21 - 23, over the weekend which coincides with Jo’s 45th birthday and some 6000 events have been organised across the county.

Members of the Ynys Môn Labour party will be taking part in the Great Get Together by organising a coffee morning in Beaumaris.

Mr Owen will be available to meet and chat, during the event at the David Hughes Community Centre, from 10am-12pm, on Friday, June 21.

Mr Owen, the island's Labour MP, knew Jo, and said she was a "true trailblazer and visionary."

“I was a great admirer of Jo. Her message was and still is an inspiration to us all." he said.

"We do have more in common and I believe that most people reject divisive politics and simply want to bring our communities together and celebrate all that unites us.

"This is our chance. In the current challenging political atmosphere this is a great way to promote tolerance and harmony.

"I’m looking forward to our GGT coffee morning at the David Hughes Community Centre and to meet and chat with as many local people as possible."
