Retired Members Picnic in the Park

From the Retired Members group:

For once in the past 18 months there does seem at last to be light at the end of the tunnel. So to celebrate our first ‘human contact’, we’ve arranged a picnic in the park at the:

Martineau Gardens
Wednesday 18th August 2021
1.30 – 3.30pm
Priory Road, Edgbaston, B5 7UG

At last it will be a chance to meet up and catch up, and please feel free to bring partners and friends. We have the use of the Gardens’
Pavilion, so we can provide teas and coffees, although please bring your own packed lunch. The Gardens will also provide a Gazebo for us, and the Pavilion will provide cover if it rains, but let’s hope for glorious sunshine – we deserve it.

The event is also being used to launch the Birmingham Retired Members Learning Together, Campaigning together booklet. There will be music and it is free to attend.

The Martineau Community Gardens is a green space run by a trust with many of the workers being UNISON members.
