Meeting the Mayor

On 16th February 2018 International Women’s Day, the Women of Bedford were pleased to be presented with a cheque £1,000 to the project from the Community Chest fund by the Mayor of Bedford Dave Hodgson, to go towards the first statue of a woman in Bedford.


This donation is a great step towards reaching our funding target and goal of erecting a statue of Amy Walmsley who was a leading figure in the Bedford Women’s Suffrage Society and Bedfordshire’s first female county councillor.
