The Martyrs of Tolpuddle Festival 15th-17th July 2011, "Freedom Hike" 2011

The membership will be aware that the Tolpuddle Festival will take place on the 15th - 17th July 2011 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 17th July 2011.  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 17th July 2011 and submit names to the General Secretary at POA Headquarters by Monday 4th July 2011.

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
