"Bystanders must be supported to take action when they fear domestic abuse"
EVAW, in collaboration with other organisations involved with Domestic Abuse, has signed a joint statement calling for people not to be afraid to speak up if they suspect another person's safety is at risk.
In the wake of discussions over whether it is appropriate for neighbours and other bystanders to get involved in domestic disputes, EVAW highlighted the need for people not to be put off about reporting anything which they feel is not right, noting it is "natural human instinct" to want to speak up if something doesn't seem right.
TG supports this endeavour, and would encourage members to take this message to heart and not be afraid to say something which might just very well save a life.

Marie’s daughter Indra told us about her Mum’s long TG membership and how she is inspiration to all who meet and get to know her.
Marie Pooran came to Britain in the 1960s (from the Caribbean) and joined the Tottenham Evening Townswomen's Guild in 1971, a quintesentially British organisation which she has contributed fully to it - and continues to do so. At that time she was the only Asian member and actually for all of her 50 years has been one of few across many guilds and a rarity when attending the AGM and other events.TG applauds the Gambling Commission taking action against 888

- 80s Night
In 1983, Cindy Lauper told us that ‘Girls just want to have fun’ and we proved her right at our 80s night on 19th August.
We were a cheerful group with some of our number clad in 80s ‘going out’ favourites of bright wigs, leg warmers and fingerless gloves plus oversized earrings and clusters of necklaces. We were asked to consider our 1980s style and ponder on some big questions of the time like Who shot J.R? Was Michael Fish right when he said there would be no storm? Could Alvin Stardust teach you how to cross the road, when seen wearing a glove with a ring on the outside of it? And was a bum bag the best way to keep your valuables safe?
