Hello to all members,

Please see our latest Newsletter for the invitation to this free social event which the Editor, Alex Bailey, published on page 7. Book your place now by phoning the Guildhall box office 01452 503050 and they will email you your ticket.

It is open to all member of course, but those of you who have joined in the last couple of years may find it particularly interesting to meet the Council of Management and other leaders of active groups in the Trust. Come and find out more about what we do and why we do it.

Over the years the Trust has been instrumental in saving many of our listed buildings. Our organisation, and the people in it, want to promote and protect Gloucester's heritage.
