There is an informal plan to meet up in Gloucester on the evening before the reunion. It’s not a formal GCOCA event, but many of the Committee will be in attendance. It will most likely be arranged through our Facebook Group. If you aren’t on Facebook and would like to be updated via email please email email@example.com.
The latest edition of our newsletter is now available here.
Wishing all of our members a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year on behalf of the GCOCA. If you’re near Gloucester this festive season there are plenty of events happening in and around the Cathedral; see their Christmas 2014 Services & Events page for details.
