Drum for justice photos of event on 14th February 2014

The Drum for Justice sheets blowing around in the wind. In the morning of the event I wasn't sure if it was going to go a head. I had been up all night making costume for Boadicea and tying up loose ends. When morning came I a phone call came from a school teacher who was unsure about taking the children out in the rain and wind. So I am pleased I prepared myself for an early start as there was plenty of people in the morning wanting to mess up my timetable. Always be prepared and start much earlier then you intend to. There was no alternative arrangement for bad weather because last year we practised weekly in the snow and thought we could do this in any weather condition. 

My friend Rachel from Yarmouth art college came along to join in the fun.

Shelly Teddy even showed up and wasn't at all bothered about getting her fur wet.

Future radio came and set up the technical side for the sound system and Mary the signer also came along. 

All the school children from Catton Grove school dancing to Break the Chain.

Fire service came along which was great. I also invited the police to come along as they also have to deal with domestic violence. 

Bucket collectors from in the rain collecting for Leeway women's refuge charity.

The drummers were put in separate groups to get the layers of levels and types of drumming to make up the Morse code beat which spelled out Enough is enough!!!!!

Mr Punch helped organise the event and he says he was rising to stop abusers from abusing women.
Mr. Punch also made a pledge not to Punch anyone again.
