Come along to the monthly reminiscence café and enjoy the memories over a cup of tea ....
100 years ago in 1918, women over 30 finally got the vote after many years of active campaigning. Since then voting has been extended to include all citizens over 18.
For some, voting is very important and we loyally go to the polls, whilst others are not sure. Do you remember the first time you voted? Do you have any memories of your parents voting or anyone in your family engaging in elections? What about going to meetings in church halls to listen to the candidates? Before you could vote, did you talk about elections in your family or read the newspapers?
