Local members took photos of themselves holding candles, in support of a UN initiative to stop violence against women.
The original plan had been to hold candlelit vigils in public, but covid restrictions put paid to that idea. But domestic violence and access to public services will be important issues in the forthcoming local elections. So we put together a simple poster for distribution toneighbouring constituency party’s and through social media.
The project was led by our very active Women’s Group. If you have ideas or want to be involved in more direct, community-based activity, please get in contact with Elaine our Women’s Officer.
