An event is taking place this Sunday (6 March at 5.30pm) aimed at raising awareness over women’s safety.
A march will start off in Victoria Park at the fountain and will finish at the Bandstand in the town centre, where there will be speeches and live music.
Organiser Cllr Lyn Suddards said: “We have had a number of Safer Streets initiatives and this event is about women themselves making a statement about our right to feel safe when they go out.
“Everyone is welcome and it is also an opportunity for men, who are also concerned for us, to show their support too.
“We hope it will be fun filled family event finishing with words of wisdom from Bishop Rose, the first black female bishop well known for campaigning against injustice.”
