As part of our summer activities this year Teresa Hughes and Helen Lofts are organising a Caerleon Labour Party coach trip to the Tolpuddle Martyrs Rally on Sunday 20th July.
We’ll go through some of the most beautiful parts of England, and Tolpuddle is a pretty Dorset village in the Piddle valley – eight miles east of Dorchester. The Tolpuddle Martyrs were a group of 19th century Dorset agricultural labourers who were arrested for and convicted of swearing a secret oath as members ofthe Friendly Society of Agricultural Labourers. The Tolpuddle Martyrs were subsequently sentenced to transportation to Australia.

Please note that applications for places should be made before Tuesday 1st July and will be issued on a first come first served basis. We look forward to hearing from you!
