Tolpuddle Festival 16th-18th July 2010 “Freedom Hike” 2010

The membership will be aware that the Tolpuddle Festival will take place on the 16th - 18th July 2010 and information can be obtained from the following website www.tolpuddlemartyrs.org.uk

The POA have agreed once again to organise a “Freedom Hike” from Dorchester Prison to the Tolpuddle Museum on Sunday 18th July 2010.  This will cover a distance of approximately 8 miles and will follow the route taken by the martyrs in 1834, following their arrest.

The Dorchester Branch has agreed to assist in organising the freedom walk, which has now become a regular event.

All members wishing to take part in this memorable walk should meet at Dorchester Prison at 9.00am on Sunday 18th July 2010 and submit names to the General Secretary at POA Headquarters by Monday 5th July 2010.

We once again ask that as many members, friends and families as possible attend this great festival of unity and solidarity. 

We ask that you make this a successful trade union and POA event.

Yours sincerely

General Secretary
