Winchester Labour Continues Campaign for NHS at August Street Stall
Continuing our ongoing campaign for better funding and focus on local services within the NHS, members of Winchester CLP were once again at The Buttercross in Winchester this Saturday (4th August), calling for signatures to our ongoing petition.
We were fortunate to meet many members of the public who were equally passionate about taking care of our health service, and enjoyed conversations with several people on how and why it mattered to them. We were also offered words of support from those who had signed the petition and NHS’s 70th birthday card at our previous street stall in July, and from those passing by who were from overseas on holiday and so could not sign, but nevertheless supported the cause.
As well as passing members of the public the street stall was augmented by further members of Winchester Labour, who gave some of their time to support the stall, and who enthusiastically signed the petition and showed their support.
In addition to members of Winchester CLP, we were pleased to be joined by Mike Dukes of Romsey Labour, which we hope will be the beginning of a closer collaboration between local Labour groups to further our common goals. Keep an eye on the Facebook page for details of upcoming Romsey Labour events.
