HUNDREDS of people flocked to the celebrations of the first Winsford Women’s Day held at Winsford Lifestyle Centre for the event organised by Motherwell Cheshire.

Women were greeted by the team and encouraged to take part in workshops geared towards empowering and generating fun for those taking part.

Winsford Women’s Day was held on the day of International Women’s Day, March 8, where women from across the world were encouraged to ‘Be Bold for Change’, aiming to help forge a better working community for a more inclusive, gender equal, world.

Organisations from across Cheshire set up stalls, offering advice, support and give-aways to attendees.

Fabb Fitness set up an interactive training session where women were encouraged to re-train their brain to think positively alongside exercise.

Kate Blakemore, organiser of the event and founder of Motherwell Cheshire, said: “Winsford Women’s Day was a real success and we are all very proud of the first event of its kind, held in Winsford.

“We looked to incorporate a good mix of speakers, demonstrations and workshops, of which we have received such brilliant feedback.

“Our aim with this event is always to support women in the area by providing them with information and access to some of the area’s key service providers.”

Chief Inspector Sarah Pengelly, commander for Warrington, closed the event with her talk.

She said: “I’m passionate about being able to support women developing in any way that they can for themselves and for their dreams and aspirations.”
