March & Rally

Saturday 23rd June 2007

Our March & Rally was a fantastic success, and was very well attended, despite the bad weather, with people travelling from all around the country to give their support. Some unfortunately were held up by yet another accident on the road from Swindon.

    Starting from  the Shire Hall in Westgate Street, the march was accompanied through the streets of Gloucester by a local Samba Band. There was then a rally outside the City Council offices, North Warehouse, in Gloucester Docks.
