May Day March

The president, secretary and membership secretary carried the NTA banner, alongside the banner used in the film ‘Pride’, at the annual TUC May Day March.

They were encouraged to also take the NTA banner to the London Pride March on June 27th.

It would be great to see other NTA members marching with us on the day. Details to follow soon!
