"The events taking place over the next few days in her memory will rightly mark the life an outstanding woman".

"We will not go back to a "them and us" culture where distrust and hate exist and the best way to help end prejudice is by talking to each other and understanding our various communities".

As part of the national events, social justice charity Himmah is holding a communal Iftarr meal at The Bobbersmill Community Centre, on Berridge Road, from 7pm and 10pm, today (Saturday, June 17) and tomorrow.

"Hopefully the bench will provide a relaxing spot for hospital staff to take a break and meet up with colleagues and it also serves as a fitting legacy to the inspiring contribution Jo Cox made in bringing together people from all walks of life", she added.

"Seeing Jo's body was an important part of them understanding and grieving", Cox told CNN.

Local imam Dr Musharraf Hussain of the Karimia Institute has lent his support to the action. "But it shouldn't take the murder of Jo, or the bad events of the past few weeks, to remind us that ordinary people can do extraordinary acts of courage, kindness and generosity towards strangers and friends alike", he added.

During the event on Sunday at Priory Park, there will be a free market, giving people the chance to swap clothes, toys, games, books and more. She would have been here bouncing on the bouncy castle with the kids.

Debbie Simon, managing director of the nursery, which looks after 149 children, told the Post: "It has been fantastic".

"In spite of tragic events including the recent terror attacks in London and Manchester I think we've seen the power and strength of the community response which proves that closer communities really are worth fighting for". "We are a diverse nursery with a cultural mix".

It was held at The Julien Cahn Pavilion in West Bridgford where teas, a book stall and raffle were on offer.

It was organised by Mrs Cox's husband Brendan on the weekend of the anniversary of her death.

And more than 200 people attended a street party in Julian Road, Lady Bay.

On June 16 2016 Jo Cox was shot and stabbed by a far-right extremist in Birstall, near her constituency of Bateley and Spen. "We should come together to celebrate the strength, kindness and unity of our communities".
