PROTEST MARCH ON DOWNING STREET – Saturday, October 21 – UPDATE


Posted on July 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

The march will take place on Saturday, October 21, 2000, starting at 1pm in Hyde Park. The march will proceed to Trafalgare Square. Following this a letter, which the organiosers say clearly explains the plight of the long term care industry, will be presented to Mr Blair. # Assemble: 1pm North Carriage drive, Hyde Park LONDON # A steward wearing a yellow armband is required for each bus. # While in Hyde Park banners should not be displayed. # The march will terminate at Trafalgar Square at about 4.30pm. # Six people to present letter to Mr Blair. NOTE: The march organisers say the cost of a 53-seater bus and driver from Chesterfield is £375. Care homes in one area could join together and share the cost. “Ten homes sharing a bus would only cost £50 per home, which is a very small price to pay for the recognition we deserve to maintain good quality care of our residents in the homes that they have chosen to live in. We ask NO MONEY, only your support. Please fax your support to Lesley and Margaret on 01246 5
