ABOUT OUR BRANCH

 

The  Branch  was founded in Gloucester in 1978 at a small meeting and has grown to a membership of around 200 dedicated to following the aims of the Society.

 

The Branch Patron is Dame Janet Trotter, DBE, Her Majesty's Lord Lieutenant for the County of Gloucestershire;  our President is Councillor Pam Tracey, MBE; our Vice Presidents are Lord Cope of Berkeley, PC, and Mr. Mike Smith (founding Chairman); our Chairman is Mrs. Pat Ayres MBE.

 

The focus of the Branch's year is the noted St. George's Day Service in Gloucester Cathedral, to which representatives of all facets of the County's society are invited. About 80 organisations are represented and nearly 50 standards paraded. 

 

Incorporated in the Service is the presentation of the Captain Robert Nairac, GC, Youth Awards.  These are given to young people of the County who have shown some of the qualities epitomised by Captain Nairac. The awards are  presented by HM Lord-Lieutenant for Gloucestershire and Branch Patron, Dame Janet Trotter.

 

Red roses are distributed to those attending the Service and also to the public in the major towns throughout the county on St. George's Day.  From donations collected the Branch supports Gloucestershire charities.

 

Throughout the year social events are held to enable members to gather together.  These have included lunches, dinners and garden parties, harvest suppers and day trips, and there is always a January lunch to welcome in the New Year.
