Suffolk Hate and Mate Crime week
Today we launched our new website website and Facebook page at the Info Bar in Bury St Edmunds! Phoenix Rising Directors were joined by Kate Evans (Manager at Leading Lives), staff from Leading Lives, Deborah Charles (Community Safety Co-Ordinator, Suffolk Hate Crime) and past students! Everyone had a great time and the cakes were delicious!
We had a fantastic response to our new website and you can see the photos of the launch in our gallery!
Due to unforeseen circumstances the Parliamentary Outreach team were unable to attend and the day was re-organized and the
Love your Vote workshops were run by Ria Towill and Adrian Figg from Phoenix Rising and Kate Evans from Leading Lives to enable people to find out about the importance of voting and politics on their day to day lives. A call went out and the Mayor, Deputy Mayor, local councillor, Deborah Charles Community Safety Coordinator and Chewy from ACE came to the rescue, 50 plus students including Info- bar customers attended the morning and afternoon sessions.
The Deputy Mayor had a very positive reception and a number of challenging questions like “Why can we not use our bus before 9.30am” and “do you get paid for being a councillor”
