This blue plaque was mounted on Chorley Town Hall on 6 November 2018 to commemorate the first Chorley Suffrage meeting held there on the 11th January 1910.
The unveiling was followed by a presentation on how a group of Chorley women worked with lots of the community and Chorley & District Trade Union Council to make this happen.
104 year old Mrs. Rigby unveiled the plaque as a tribute to Chorley Women and in doing so also celebrated her 9 decades – and counting – working with the Girl Guides in Chorley. A true example of Chorley Womanhood.
The event also took a look at modern day Suffragettes in poems and songs.
