The sign “Shackles Off” is all about freedom –
The project is under the umbrella of the Methodist church, and supported by the three churches in Seascale village. However, this is social project and below is our Equal Opportunities statement.
We are committed to eliminating discrimination and creating an environment where all people, regardless of gender, cultural or ethnic origin, disability, sexual orientation, age, religion or belief are treated with dignity and respect. We have procedures in place which enable complaints of discrimination to be dealt with promptly and fairly.
Inspector Joe Murray of Cumbria Constabulary speaking on Radio Cumbria on 22nd October 2010 said “it’s a pity we don’t have a “Shackles Off” in every town and village because the community would be a far greater and happier place to be for many people”.
