Bedford Creative Arts is pleased to be supporting Women of Bedford in an initiative to fundraise for the first statue of a woman to be erected in the borough. Yesterday, Director of BCA Elaine Midgley joined other guests at Bedford Heights, for an evening reception to support the campaign and creatively explore the stories of the past and present women from the town together.
Clare Sumner, co-founder of Women of Bedford said: “Now is the time for us to inspire the all women leaders of the future and the inclusive society we want to see. As part of this we want to create the first woman’s statue in Bedford of suffragette and educationalist Amy Walmsley. We really want the women and men in our town to help us make this happen.”
