"I believe there is a groundswell of people who reject divisive politics and simply want to bring our communities together and celebrate all that unites us".

As well-wishers across the country prepared for community events this weekend to mark the anniversary of the MP's death, Kim Leadbeater described the year since her older sister was shot and stabbed to death by right-wing loner Thomas Mair as a "constant rollercoaster".

She said: "That doesn't mean we don't have days where it really can be a struggle to keep going, but so far we're managing".

"But they have actually been quite sporadic and I think I need a bit more time to really understand what's happened".

Jo, a Member of Parliament in the United Kingdom died on 16 June past year (17) after she was shot and stabbed by white supremacist Thomas Mair while preparing to meet her constituents in Birstall, England.

A Great Get Together event is also happening in Clifton Park tomorrow and will feature food, music, stalls and workshops, as well as a community art project.

The murder of Jo came just a week before Britons went to the polls to vote to leave the European Union on 23 June previous year (16).

"So we've got each other, and we've come together, and that's been really really helpful".

"Everyone is being encouraged to organise or take part in events, including street parties, all over the country".

"We did karaoke really badly, we made cocktails, we did quizzes and we just had really good fun".

Jo Cox's death shook the nation after she was murdered in broad daylight in Birstall on June 16, 2016.

"Jo's maiden speech went on to characterise a Yorkshire spirit of proud independence and nonconformity - and to back that up by raising some hard issues for government".

"As the Great Get Together launches this coming weekend in memory of Jo Cox's life and work, we two editors have no hesitation in uniting, if for one day only, to share the fine sentiment of George Orwell, that "If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear".
