Women & Power: NET Residents walk in the steps of the Suffrage!
The 6th of February marked 100 years since the Representation of The People Act was passed in Britain giving (some) women the right to vote.
To mark the Suffrage Centenary, Newark Emmaus Trust has teamed up with Southwell Workhouse and the
National Portrait Gallery to run a Women and Power Project to explore the history of the Suffrage; its impact and legacy and what it means to be young, marginalised, female and homeless in today’s society.
October saw us getting spooky across the Project, with a number of ghoulish activities planned throughout the month.
Our Child Development Worker, Teresa organised an afternoon of fun with our young parents and
their families which saw our Training Centre be given a Halloween makeover of cobwebs,
spiders and hand and footprint collages made by our babies and toddlers.
In keeping with the Halloween theme, Katie, Rob and 6 plucky residents braved a trip to Xtreme Scream in Melton Mowbray- voted by Scare Con as the Best Scream Park in the UK. This being our first ever visit we had no idea what to expect but the hype we had heard previously did not disappoint — WHAT A NIGHT!
A Day on the Farm
On a beautiful sunny day in October, the parents and staff at NET travelled to White Post farm using the local bus service.
