Bath Against Cuts in 2015Posted: January 2, 2016
First Tuesday of the Month 8 pm The Ram Widcombe.
Come to the meeting with campaign ideas & ideas to change what needs to be changed!
Wishing you all a happy & productive 2016
I’ve tried to get these photos in order of action but i may not have been totally accurate. I’ve used some that you will have already seen but i’ve tried to put in ones that ended up on the cutting room floor! I know there will be people who will say what i’ve missed out, so do remind me & i’ll add them (& any photos you want me to add to the WordPress site, please send them to me. (via firstname.lastname@example.org)
Anyway, i would like to wish everyone a happy & productive 2016.
