Reclaiming the Night!

November 23, 2018

Club members and guests joined us for a walk around Bath ‘Reclaiming the night” making the streets safer for women and ending violence against women.  We had a good response from the public whilst we handed out ‘Love me, love me not’ bookmarks to emphasise what a good relationship is and what a bad relationsbip feels like.

Father Christmas is a staunch supporter for our very important cause.
