Join us for a Tea Dance on The Hoe on 26th May to fulfil the promise that Waldorf Astor made during WW2. He said: "The people of Plymouth have danced during the darkest days of war. They will dance here again in peace on a Hoe which overlooks a city which has been planned for them, for a wider, freer, healthier and more prosperous life."
So, to celebrate your amazing work in raising this statue, dance again we will! On 26th May, 2019, The Hoe, 1pm to 4pm. See you there!
The event is FREE but you can donate here. The money will cover costs and any extra will to go a legacy project for the young women of Plymouth to help and encourage them to get involved in politics.
For the first time in almost 100 years there is no female Plymouth MP in Plymouth and we would like to use this opportunity to help young people to become more engaged in public service and politics in the city and surrounding areas.
We will also be working with the existing charities, foundations and legacy projects set up by Lady Nancy Astor for the people of Plymouth and supported by her family.
As a committee we are open to suggestions on any over-raise: including another possible statue in London outside the Houses of Parliament where she was the first female MP to take her seat 100 years ago.
