Gathering at the Forest ground, the march started at around 12noon. Proceeding down the Mansfield Road more people joined, perhaps 2 - 3000 eventualy marching and arriving in the market Square.

There were many kids protesting at the proposed closing of the Gedling School and Specialist Science College. http://savegedlingschool.wordpress.com They were given pride of place at the front of the march.

Aside from the Trade Union contingent, I was impressed by the broad spread of ages and groups involved. This one of the biggest protests in Nottingham for some years and certainly the biggest on this issue.  It is hoped that this is a momentum that can be maintained.
