EqualiTeas & Illustrated Talk

We are delighted to announce that this June we will be working with Eastcott Community Organisation on two events to celebrate Swindon Suffragette Edith New and have been awarded almost £1700 from the Women’s Vote Centenary Grant Scheme to support this. This is a £1.5 million government fund that will support local and community groups across England in celebration of the centenary of women gaining the right to vote.

Thanks to the grant there will be two events at Savernake Street Social Hall in June; a family friendly EqualiTea on 24 June – a day of theatre, arts and crafts, song, a voting booth and a gardening activity; and a talk titled ‘Worth the Whipping’ on 29 June. Both events will be free to attend and more information will be coming soon.
