The highlight for us was our Information Sharing Event for Bristol Women’s Services. This was an opportunity to find out about women’s services in Bristol with guest speakers, light refreshments and agencies providing services for women in Bristol exhibiting information.
Other events included Bristol’s Blue Monday Galleries event, where we were delighted to join over 40 local organisations, offering Bristol residents the chance to have informal chats with our expert advisors.
And we could not resist joining the Lantern parade, celebrating the centenary anniversary of women getting the right to vote.
