Celebrity Visits Batley

Eddie Izzard visited Batley with over 500 others to complete a special running course around Oakwell Hall, in memory of Jo Cox. Over 200 people entered the family fun run and over 300 took part in the 6.5km run. Eddie showed his running stamina and ran in both races together with Jo Cox's family and friends. It was a wonderful day to celebrate Jo's life and everything she stood for and bring our community together in a superb family event. Well done to all of the More In Common organises and the Friends of Oakwell Hall (a truly magnificent location).

Several events have been held this weekend in memory of Jo Cox and all of the people who lost their loved ones in the horrific Grenfell Tower fire and the attack on the mosque at Finsbury Park. A vigil was held at Batley Town Hall on Saturday at 5pm. Thank you to everyone from our community who attended any of these events to show your support.
