Businesses that have helped GCN
The Big Yellow Storage Company, on Eastern Avenue Gloucester, has very generously provided GCN with two storage rooms (1 x 15foot sq & 1 x 25foot sq) for 24 months for FREE.
GCN has a collection of WW1 and WW2 uniforms and the Books from the ‘Geoff North -‘War’ & ‘Conflict’ Research Library and these items need to be kept in an environment that needs to be both secure and easily accessible.
The friendly staff at the Gloucester Store have been extremely generous and have been very helpful in ensuring we can access these storage containers whenever we need to, using their Security Codes and Padlocks.
