    Keep-our-hospitalsMyPoster-2Come defend your local Ashburton & Buckfastleigh Community Hospital and join the demonstration against its closure – March with your friends and neighbours against NHS cuts this Saturday 21st of January. It is vital that people turn out in large number as a powerful show of opposition against proposed closures and cuts.

    Meet at Cleder Place, North Street, Ashburton at 10am. Wear something red (the health bosses said ‘there are no red lines’ in this round of cuts, so we aim to build a red line!). Cleder Place is the open green with small play area just down from where the public library used to be and area across from Adrian Ager, 38 North St.

    The group will proceed at 10.30am from Cleder Place up North St, turn left onto East St and march the short distance to Ashburton & Buckfastleigh Hospital.

    Please bring a placard (download one here). Let others know – please print out poster (here) and put in your window, on your gate, anywhere you can – use these or create your own.

    Parking in Ashburton can be tricky at the best of times so arrive early and perhaps consider sharing transport. If you need a lift, contact Andy: hospital@andystokes.com or 01364643920

    For more information about the march or the proposed closure of the community hospital, call Sarah on 07920 003112 or meadowdweller@hotmail.co.uk
