Civic Trust marks 40 years in Gloucester
MEMBERS of Gloucester Civic Trust paraded through the city on Saturday to celebrate 40 years of protecting and promoting its history and heritage.
They were accompanied by the mayor and sheriff and the city MP on their way from a service of thanksgiving at St Mary de Crypt Church to a reception at the Guildhall.
City MP Richard Graham said: "What does every great city need? A superb cathedral, a great manufacturing tradition, historic personalities and a great soul. We have that in spadefuls.
"But it also needs a great champion, or guardian, to maintain, restore and promote it – and that has been the role of the Gloucester Civic Trust over the past 40 years. I look forward to it continuing in this role for another 40 years."
Sunday and Monday evenings £12.00 per head for an all inclusive meal with Indian and Thai cuisine (normal price £14.50).
Bring this voucher to the restaurant complete with your name and email address on it.
