THE MARTYRS OF TOLPUDDLE FESTIVAL 15th - 17th JULY 2016 “FREEDOM HIKE” 2016

The membership will be aware that the Tolpuddle Festival will take place on the 15th – 17th July 2016 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 the closed Dorchester Prison to the Tolpuddle Museum on Sunday 17th July 2016. 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 17th July 2016.

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. I would like to thank Angela Sinclair, Dave Todd (NEC) and Dave Cook from our Swaleside Branch for taking the time to organise this year’s event on behalf of the POA.

Yours sincerely

 


STEVE GILLAN
General Secretary
