English Heritage finally recognising Emily Davison is long overdue

Caroline Pidgeon, the Liberal Democrat Londonwide Assembly Member, has welcomed the decision by English Heritage to finally ensure a Blue Plaque is provided to recognise and celebrate the life of the suffragette Emily Davison.

Caroline first urged English Heritage to recognise Emily Davison back in 2015.

Caroline made the most of the sunny weekend supporting Lambeth Lib Dems with Helen Thompson, Rob Blackie and Baroness Celia Thomas.
