As the UK celebrates 100 years since some women were given the vote I am keen to invite as many people as possible to join me in a celebration of the life of one of the women who led the charge all those years ago.
On Saturday 28th July 2018 from 11:00am until 1:00pm, along with Councillor Juliet Brunner the Mayor of Redditch, I will be hosting a celebration at the Redditch Bandstand in the town centre where we will be laying a wreath in memory of Mrs. Pankhurst. We will also be hearing from women who serve in politics and public life, with the aim to inspire the women in attendance to come forwards themselves. As Millicent Fawcett said, 'courage calls to courage, everywhere'.
If you would like to attend please can you confirm by email to firstname.lastname@example.org with details and expected numbers, as we are planning to have some refreshments afterwards at Rees Café in Church Road.
