Gloucester Civic Trust
Gloucester Civic Trust is based at St Michael’s Tower at The Cross and with the active support of its members provides a varied programme of tours and activities to bring alive the history of the city for local residents and visitors. We also seek to ensure that re-generation and future plans respect and complement Gloucester’s heritage.
The Trust is very proud to have received the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.
