Union boss Bob Crow coming to Bridgwater to mark TUC's 100th birthday
ONE of the most easily recognised union figures in Britain will be coming to Bridgwater this month.
Bob Crow, general secretary of the Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers' Union, will be joining the Bridgwater Trades Union Council when it celebrates its 100th birthday on October 19.
The event will feature a banner parade - similar that witnessed when the Bridgwater and Highbridge branches of the National Union of Railwaymen joined forces to found the Bridgwater TUC in June 1913.
The parade will assemble at 12.30pm in Cranleigh Gardens, and march to the Baptist Church, in St Mary Street.
There will then be a rally, addressed by Rosemary Eaton, minister at the Baptist Church, Nigel Costley, secretary of the South-West TUC, Rosie MacGregor, vice-chair of the South-West TUC, and Bob Crow.
