  • Churches together Women's Gala

    date amended re email 19.1.2018 Fiona to ODOn Sat, Oct 21, 2017 at 6:13 PM, SUSAN EGGLESTONE  wrote: Caroline and Fiona, I am a member of the steering committee for a proposed Women's Gala next year, Sunday July 15th 2018 which is the day after the Miners' Gala.  Something else to keep me busy in my retirement!   It is proposed that the event will be held in Wharton Park on the Sunday afternoon and will be an alcohol free, family friendly celebration of the centenary of initial women's suffrage as well as the role of women today!  We are hoping to have some high profile speakers as well as music and games.  Traditionally a Women's Gala was held in the park the day after the main Gala until the 1970s. Although the event will be somewhat political in nature I am the non-political member of the steering committee, which also includes Marion Wilson, Roberta Blackman-Woods and Vera Baird.  The chair is a young local councillor who happens to be a former pupil of mine.   We wondered if the event might conclude with a service of celebration in St Cuthbert's at the end of the afternoon?  We are just at the beginning of the planning and fundraising stage but I wondered what your initial thoughts were?   Many thanks, Susan
