Our all party, multi-agency demonstration against reductions to King George Hospital - a great success!

Campaigning is a serious process, however, it was great to be able to get people to have a jolly in the cold weather.
MP's, Councillors, the leader of the Council and Kajul Pahl our Carnival Queen challenged local people to sign the petition.

Cold weather could not stop the demonstration!

Just look at the ice on the floor! We refused to leave until the day was complete!

Over 50 people attended the vent we just could not squeeze them into our camera. Sorry!

As with any event things are not always as organised as they would seem from photos. The event, however, was a great success!

Today to the fore of Ilford Town Hall, the Green Party organised what has to be recorded as a pivotal moment for the campaign against potential termination of Accident and Emergency Facility and Maternity Facility, at King George Hospital.

The all party event, put together by our own Ilsa Martin, Juliet Chowdhry, Rajeshri Chouhan, Chris Connelly and of course Wilson Chowdhry, was a great success. Over 500 signatures were collected and many people learnt about the dastardly Redbridge PCT plans, for the first time.

Visitors to the event included:

Leader of the Council Cllr Keith Prince
Mike Gapes MP
Lee Scott MP Cllr Balvinder Saund
Cllr Lorraine Sladden (Redbridge Mayor 2008)
Cllr John Tyne
Kajul Pahl - Redbridge Carnival Queen
Mark Dawes - Redbridge and Waltham Forest Green Party Co-ordinator
Bob Archer -Hope Not Hate

and several other councillors......

Thank you to all that joined us - we will be arranging more keep watching this space!
