A CREATIVE art exhibition is being held to celebrate International Women's Day.

Guest speakers will also be presenting a series of inspirational talks at the Winsford campus of Warrington and Vale Royal College tomorrow, Saturday, from 10am to 4pm.

Motherwell Cheshire is hosting the fourth Winsford Women's Day with an action packed programme.

International Women’s Day is a global call to action for accelerating gender parity.

This year's theme is women in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) and Balance for Better to promote equality of the sexes in the workplace.

Founder of the Women’s Day events Kate Blakemore said: “I chose these themes as they are so important for women and girls to understand that their gender is not a barrier to them going into whatever profession they choose. I also wanted to celebrate the local women in STEM professions to inspire others”

College STEM director Catherine Brierley said: "We believe the promotion of STEM subjects is paramount to engage with girls to produce the engineers and scientist of the future.

"This engagement has resulted in many students moving onto some excellent university courses, and careers in blue chip companies .

"The day is a celebration of all things STEM and we welcome the local community in visiting the college and enjoying the event as our guests”

The High Sheriff of Cheshire Alexis Redmond MBE will open the event.

Guest speakers include author Kate Cousens on the topic 'Climbing the ladders in heels'.

PC Jo Green will talk about opportunities for females in the police force. Dr Sally Freeman from University of Manchester will speak about opportunities in STEM.

Local charities and women in business will be showcasing their work and selling their handmade crafts.

Kate added: "The day is about celebrating women in the local community and empowering all women to be proud of themselves and others. Motherwell’s strapline is Women supporting Women and this event does just that”
