As 2018 represents one hundred years of women being able to vote, Glossop Arts Project felt they should commemorate the event. They invited a number of local groups, including the Embroiderers' Guild, to take part in creating a banner to commemorate the centenary of women's suffrage. It became a group project with each group working one of the panels.
A small number of Glossop EG members volunteered to take part and here is the result of their work:-
The banner was displayed in Norfolk Square in Glossop last Saturday and photographed for the local paper, then everyone who participated marched with the banner to the Labour Club, which will be its home.
After the celebration members of Glossop Arts Project took some beautiful flowers to the grave of Florence French in Glossop Cemetery. Florence was a leading campaigner for women's suffrage in Glossop and one of the founders of Glossop Labour Club.
This was a rewarding local community event and all who contributed felt it was a fitting tribute to our local suffragist.
