On 20th October the branch took 2 coaches full of members and their families to London for the march against Austerity and for A Future that Works. Coaches left Weston super Mare at 7 am and picked up members in Clevedon and Portishead.
Highlights of the day, apart from the march itself of course, were picking up a BECTU hitch hiker at Reading service station, the boat ride from Lambeth pier to Blackfriars, seeing the Shard for the first time, the bands on the march, meeting Ed Hall who made our beautiful branch banner, and a really welcome pint of lager at the end of the day.
A big thanks to our fabulous coach stewards Robbie Gill, Lucinda Holdsworth, Helen Davies and Helen Thornton.
Here are some photos from the day. If any of our members would like to share their photos of the day please contact the branch office: 01934 634759 or just put them on a disc or memory stick and bring them in to us.
