HRH The Princess Royal to attend 90th AGM at Cheltenham Race Course

Picture this: 1,000 ladies gathered together in 1920’s and 30’s dress to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the founding of Townswomen’s Guilds (TG). This is the picture that we hope will greet our Patron, HRH The Princess Royal when she joins us for our very special AGM on Wednesday 12th June at Cheltenham Race Course.

The day will include all the usual elements of a TG AGM, including a lively debate, a motivational speaker and the presentation of awards, plus some special touches such as the debut of our new National Banner, a review of past campaign achievements, and an entertainment devised and performed by some of our talented members to tell our story.

Formed in towns after all women achieved the vote (1928), and with its root in the Suffrage Movement, today’s members carry on this tradition of campaigning and active citizenship mixed with fun, friendship, learning new skills, eating and more. Everything we do pursues our aim of Making Women’s Lives Better. To find out about joining us visit www.the-tg.com.
