Suffragettes East Cowes Parade ~ September

Linda Sheasby Dorothy Maskell and Ann Parker all paraded in East Cowes Town centre celebrating the 100 year of the Suffragettes movement.

The day was enjoyed by a large number of East Cowes residents, and Whippingham and East Cowes Women’s  institute  who organised a wonderful day in East Cowes.

We had a march through the town centre from Jubilee recreation ground then into Kings square. Stalls, cakes, drinks were all on offer with music by the local marching band, a group singing popular songs not to mention the Morris dancers and the popular Ukulele band.

Everyone was invited regardless of age or ability wearing cloths from the period after 1919.

A fun day was enjoyed by all on a beautiful sunny day. 

Well done East Cowes and Whippingham  WI on a very successful day.
