Sunday 24th August
Sudbury Suffragettes (alias Sudbury Ephemera Archive with the help of members from The Sudbury History Group and the Sudbury Society) joined in the fun of the the procession in the Sudbury Carnival on Sunday 24th August.
A great day and much fun was had by all who joined the procession. When later we learnt that we had been judged ‘The Best Float’ there was much rejoicing and merriment. It is the first time I have ever been called a Best Float!!!!
On Wednesday 8th October the Sudbury Suffragettes stormed the Town Hall to be awarded the Shield for The Best Float.
The Shield was presented to the Suffragettes by the Carnival Organiser Jack Owen. The Shield is now engraved with ‘Sudbury Ephemera Archive 2014‘. Anne Grimshaw has the Shield proudly positioned on her piano, SEA is able to keep it for six months before it returns to the Town Hall, the last winners were 1988!!! So quite a coup for the Archive. We will be able to add the small shield that we were able to keep to the Archive.
A BIG THANK you to all the Suffragettes.
