Kent’s first ever Reclaim The Night walk is BACK for a second year running and we would encourage you to join in, walk, talk and be part of the campaign to make the streets of Tunbridge Wells and beyond safer.
Mark the evening of Saturday 25th November in your diaries – meeting on Rusthall High Street at 7.30pm to walk to the Pantiles where simultaneous walks from all over the town will come to meet.
The Reclaim the Night walk is held on the same day as the UN’s International Day for the Elimination of violence against women and girls, where thousands of women walk in protest for their right to walk freely without fear of harassment, intimidation or sexual assault.
With the clocks gone back and sunset just after 4pm, the dark evenings are very long and can make many of us feel unsafe. With all of us making journeys to and from work, school, college and rugby training, the importance of feeling safe is in all our minds and no one should feel unsafe travelling to and from our doors.
We hope you can all join us from the club and beyond to walk in unison in club colours to show solidarity and support to those affected and try to prevent this from happening to anyone.
As rugby players, we understand how being empowered together makes us stronger alone both on and off the field.
Let’s help put this message out and join together for safer, busier streets. 🙅🏼♀️🚫🚨
