The Martyrs of Tolpuddle Festival 18th - 20th July 2014, "Freedom Hike" 2014

The membership will be aware that the Tolpuddle Festival will take place on the 18th – 20th July 2014 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 20th July 2014. This will cover a distance of approximately 8 miles and will follow the route taken by the martyrs in 1834, following their arrest.

All members wishing to take part in this memorable walk should meet at Dorchester Prison at 9.00am on Sunday 20th July 2014.

Please find attached leaflet for distribution to as many members, friends and families as possible, to attend this great festival of unity and solidarity.

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

Yours sincerely


Deputy General Secretary
