Big shoe a huge feat for children

Mayor with big show


The biggest shoe in Kent has been on display in Tunbridge Wells as part of the 'Put yourself in my shoes...' exhibition at the Trinity.

It was made by children from schools in the area for the exhibition to mark National Domestic Abuse Week.

The event was organised by Domestic Violence Services Co-ordinator Ailsa Paton.

Pictured (from left) are the Mayoress Chris Rusbridge, Ailsa Paton, artist in residence Jane Churchill, Mayor Mike Rusbridge and Keith Marden.

Keith is Head of Sherwood Park Primary School, whose pupils helped to make the big shoe, which probably equates to a size 512.

A total of 104 pairs are on show – representing the number of women killed each year as a result of domestic abuse. The exhibition went well and we have received many positive comments.

The week rounds off today (Friday) with a mini-conference, which will highlight the impact of Domestic Abuse.
