Suffragette Fever Hits Cornwall!

Members of Sticker WI took part in Sticker Festival last month, dressed as suffregettes. Or are they suffragists?

Earlier in the month, Mawnan WI held their own celebration with a Women’s Vote March. Over 130 marchers, including WI members, families and friends, Rainbows, Brownies and Guides and their leaders and women from the village along with some holiday makers, joined in! The procession left The Square in Mawnan and re-grouped in the amphitheatre at Trebah Gardens. Along the way they were  cheered on by supporters.

If you missed those two events, you can still join Madron WI’s Suffragette March on Thursday 18th October.  As part of Madron WI’s Centenary Celebrations, the March will be followed by a Suffragette Tea at Landithy Hall, Madron. If you’d like to join in, please meet 2pm at the junction of Trelawney Estate and Fore Street. For further information, email: madronwi@gmail. com.
