Chapter Twenty Nine
Nicks in the community.
As covered in previous chapters Nicks has always been community facing, getting involved directly in the City to help where we can with goods and services or even trying to protect historic buildings, supporting Schools and Colleges , driving the Arts forward or clearing up the streets . The Original Mr Nicks was Mayor of Gloucester twice and organised theatre shows for the masses at 1d per ticket making them available to all . Phil McCormick the MD of Nicks has continued this drive in the City setting up Gloucester Arts Council (GAC) using Nicks contacts to help make things happen and donating materials in support of local projects from Playgroups to Retirement Homes, Cathedrals to Theatres, private individuals to Gloucester City Council events . Here are just a few of the projects Nicks has supported in recent years and some that are work in progress for the future . See captions under each Photo for more info.
