The Corsham Summer Festival on 16th June invited street artists to chalk on the street. As this had been a ploy by the suffragettes to advertise their meetings Andrea Garrihy and Anna Mackie chalked the peacock logo designed by Andrea for the centenary re-enactment on 15th July. Mo Elliott’s drawing depicted the Suffragist’s walk from Land’s End to London. They were declared joint winners. It was a great advert for the cause drawing many visitors, fielding their questions and generally putting Corsham on the map regarding the suffrage cause.
