South West Legal Support Trust Walk – Monday 22nd September 2014 (provisional)

BLS understands from our colleague at the South West Legal Support Trust that this year’s annual walk to support local legal services is – provisionally – likely to be held on Monday 22nd September 2014. This will probably start at around 5.45/6 pm from somewhere in the vicinity of either the Civil Justice Centre or the Crown Courts. All details will be confirmed by the organisers in due course.  In the meantime, I would be grateful if you could, please, make a note of this provisional date and consider before you plan anything else that might raise a conflict with that date.
