These Heels are Made for Walking - Hebden Bridge

Despite the cold and foggy weather, men donned their high heels yet again for the annulay 'These Heels are Made for Walking' (as in Walk a Mile in Her Shoes). The starting ribbon was cut by Mark Burns-Williamson, West Yorkshire's first PCC (Police Crime Commissioner) who accompanied us on the walk - although could not be convinced along with the police officers to wear the heels.

Mr Grunshaw has made tackling domestic violence one of his key priorities during his term as PCC.
