Workers Memorial Day

Hi, please find attached a copy of the workers memorial day pamphlet for this years events in Preston and Chorley.  I will be bringing copies to the events, but they can  be circulated widely by email as well.  I haven’t included the service sheets in the pamphlets this time and will be bringing separate copies to insert for each event.

For your information the Preston event is on Saturday 25th April commencing 11.40 on the flag market with music, 12.00 speakers and rally, 12.30 march to corn exchange where we will be laying wreaths and flowers and finally back into the Black Horse for butties.  Unfortunately this year there is a clash with an event at Chorley for the NHS, but I hope that workplaces will continue to support the workers memorial event at Preston as well as supporting the NHS rally in Chorley.
The Chorley workers memorial event will take place on the Friday 24th April commencing at 5.45 at the park gates of Astley Park.
Please can you circulate widely.
with best wishes,
Janet Newsham
