East Devon NHS campaigners set to march on Parliament

08:52 16 February 2017


East Devon campaigners who back the NHS are being invited to march to Parliament Square to take their message to the Government.

A coach has been organised for those wanting to attend the event, which will be leaving Honiton at 7.30am, on Saturday, March 4, from Smiley Café.

A spokesman said: “The march is being organised by Health Campaigns Together and The People’s Assembly.

“They are representing active groups across the country, all campaigning for more funding and to keep the NHS public.

“People will assemble in Tavistock Square at noon and march to Parliament Square.”

A seat on the coach will cost £25, or £12 for unwaged students and the unemployed.

It will be setting off from near the Bedford Hotel, Sidmouth at 6.30am, School Lane, Sidford at 6.45am, the bus stop outside Newton Poppleford church at 7am and Ottery St Mary Church at 7.15am.

Passengers can pay in cash on the coach or by BACS transfer or cheque, if they email coach@eastdevonalliance.org.uk.
