Reported by Elaine Shotbolt, HWW Treasurer.

Welcome,Wicked Women, to my first ever blog!

On Wed 1st June after a day of heavy downpours the sun came out- hooray!

We followed in the footsteps of the Suffragettes around Bow. We heard about these wonderful women and the work they did to help the poor and starving families, and to make a difference to their lives.

Our guides Becca and Lora Su led us along the way taking in the landmarks {or not!} and what had happened there.

We were joined by five guests including my colleague Cathie and her friend Alice- thank you ladies.
We all had a wonderful evening and enjoyed snacks from the lovely Niki and quiz gifts too. Enjoy the books ladies and look forward to seeing you again!
