Flower arranging enthusiasts heard an "entertaining and interesting" talk on the Suffrage Movement last week.

The Abbots Langley Flower Arrangement Society organised the event which featured a talk from Laila Namdarkham.

A spokesperson for the society said: "It was a very entertaining and interesting talk. She explained that most people remember the movement as one that caused violence and disruption with many of the women being imprisoned and going on hunger strikes.

"The movement was much more than the events that made the headlines and was run by highly educated and, for the most part, wealthy women who not only wanted votes for women but rights over children, property, employment, banking and divorce."

The talk took place on Thursday, January 23.
