GRTHM 2010

Pictures from an event held on 27 June in Ash, Surrey

Guildford Borough Council organised a celebration day that included prize-giving, storytelling by Hilda Brazil and displays.

The Mayor of Guildford opened the event and also undertook the prize-giving for the best poster of family heritage. There were also scrap books that the local Gypsy community made with local schools and Traveller Education displays.

 

Dispelling Myths

One of the aims of GRTHM is to counter-balance the widespread ignorance of Traveller communities that often leads to hatred and conflict. Gypsy, Roma and Traveller History Month celebrates our culture and history by tackling the negative stereotyping and prejudices that have led to this situation.
