Members of WSTA attended Brighton Pride. This is the first time WSTA has attended this event and we have learnt some useful lessons for next year.
The morning started sunny and we set up the stall (which was fortunately covered) before the rain set in in the afternoon.
When we had exhausted our supply of whistles and pens we got a good response from the public to the anti-SATS petition. There were a lot of good discussions about SATS and the response was overwhelmingly positive.
They sited us next to the Conservative Party who were handing out sweets to children (shades of the gingerbread house!)
Other groups in our area included HM prison service, the inland revenue, the NASUWT and Unite the Union.
