Women’s Day Celebration back in Filwood

International Women’s Day celebrations will be returning to Filwood this March – after a five year break.

Community in Partnership Knowle West (CIPKW) will be hosting a free event on 8 March at Filwood Community Centre – with local organisations coming together to offer tasters and information.

These range from fitness dancing, nutrition and meditation sessions to counselling, pampering and stalls with details of local activities and courses.

There will also be a guest appearance from Lucienne Boyce, author of The Bristol Suffragettes.

Centre Manager June McNeill says: “I think it’s a really important year to bring it back as it’s 100 years since women first had the vote – and because we’re worth it. The idea is to get the word out there about what people can access at the different organisations…”

The event will run from 10am – 4pm at Filwood Community Centre in Barnstaple Road. For more information visit www.filwoodcommunitycentre.org.uk. Anyone wishing to have a stall on the day should call June on 0117 914 9216.
