The Bunting Is Up!

Our village is preparing for next weekend’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations and began today by putting up the bunting around Bernards’ Place, inside and outside of the Comrades Hall, up the High Street, on the railings at Trusthams and down Back Lane as well as around the Square into West Street. Almost 2,000 triangles… 950 metres of it….

Chairman of Broadwindsor Fun Group, Adrian Gray said “Our thanks to all those that turned out to put nearly a km of bunting up. It took nearly four hours but has made the village look great.

Not one bit of plastic in sight – all the bunting has been made using recycled bed sheets, duvet covers, curtains and pillowcases. Stitched together by helpers ranging from an 80 year old tailor to Broadwindsor’s 1st Rainbows 🙂

A huge thank you to everyone who was involved – be proud of this accomplished monumental and sustainable task!

After the Jubilee celebrations, the bunting will be available to other village groups wishing to use it for their celebrations in the future.

International Womens Day – Tuesday, 8th March

International Women’s Day 2022: this year’s theme is #BreakTheBias.

The organisation is calling on people toimagine a gender equal worldwhich is free of biases, stereotypes and discrimination against women. The UN’s theme isgender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow”.

Unable to meet up with your female friends? Here are 6 meaningful ways in which you can celebrate virtually on March 8th:

  1. Educate Yourself About Women’s Rights.
  2. Donate To Non-profits That Benefit Women.
  3. Chill With Your Girls Over Zoom Call.
  4. Support Local Women-Owned Brands.
  5. Book Club Featuring Women Authors.
  6. Watch Women-Led Movies.

Purple, green and white are the colours of International Women’s Day.

  • Purple signifies justice and dignity.
  • Green symbolizes hope.
  • White represents purity, albeit a controversial concept.

The colours originated from the colours worn by the Women’s Social and Political Union (WSPU) in the UK in 1908.

International Women’s Day was first established at the 1910 International Socialist Women’s Conference in Copenhagen. German women’s rights activist and Marxist theorist Clara Zetkin was the one who tabled the idea 🙂

Let’s not forget International Men’s Day…

This event is on Saturday, 19th November 2022 and focuses on men’s health, improving gender relations, highlighting male role models, and promoting positive expressions of masculinity. It’s also an opportunity to recognize men who don’t fall into traditional manifestations of masculinity, such as gay and bisexual men, transgender, or masculine non-binary people.
