We still have real suffragettes,” Anne said.The day of stories and celebration of suffrage will start at 11 am on March 8 in Our Lady of Lourdes Hall and will go on until 1pm “or whenever people are finished having a chat,” said Anne.There will be a raffle to raise funds for another worthwhile community activity, the Wednesday night bingo.“It’s a social night out for a lot of people and some are even collected by minibus and brought to it but they are struggling and they don’t have money to put up prizes anymore so we’ll be donating the raffle proceeds to them,” she explained.More local news here.
