Stuart Brady, Labour’s parliamentary candidate at the next general election for Loughborough attended the Equaliteas event hosted by the Loughborough Local Studies Group at Loughborough Library on 23rd June 2018.
The Equaliteas events are happening nationwide as a series of celebrations of the 90th anniversary of the Representation of the People Act 1928, which granted women the right to vote. The events are being coordinated and promoted by the UK Parliament.
Stuart’s arrival at the event was only shortly after the departure from the event of his opposite number at the next general election Nicky Morgan.
“It is incredibly important that we keep telling the story and marking the importance of our hard-won democratic rights and steps towards equality.”
“This is yet another brilliant event from this hardworking and inspirational group of volunteers. The way that the Local Studies Group have informed the people of Loughborough and Charnwood of the importance of women being granted the vote over the course of this year has been fantastic. Always done with such good humour, creative flare and encyclopaedic knowledge.”
“Attending this event at Loughborough Library was also a chance to learn about the incredibly valuable work that the Local Studies group is doing to catalogue our valuable local artefacts and historical documents. Work that will doubtless have a long and powerful legacy”.
