Care homes public meeting
Following on from a series of meetings, the Elmbridge Care Homes Campaign is hosting a public meeting to put the case for the nationalisation of three care homes in the Elmbridge area of Surrey.
Chair of the Elmbridge Care Homes Campaign, and secretary of Surrey County Unison, Paul Couchman said: "We have decided to draw a 'line in the sand' and say no more sell-offs. We are fighting to preserve the excellent services provided at The Summers, Rodney House and Langdown. We believe that this can only be achieved by Surrey County council using its full powers to make a compulsory purchase of the three homes."
The meeting is being held at 7pm on Wednesday 5 August at the Molesey Football Club, 412 Walton Road, West Molesey.
