It has been a pleasure working with local community members during the past year fighting for our local heritage and the vital acute services at Grantham Hospital.
As we move into 2013 the year will start with the end of the public Consultation on Grantham Hospital services in February.
Members of SOS Grantham Hospital, a cross party organisation, will be calling for the restoration of acute services rather than the continued degradation of acute services, including loss of our maternity unit, currently proposed.
As a district councillor and opposition Labour Group leader, I will be working with my fellow councillors Rob Shorrock and Alan Davidson (Earlesfield ward), Ian Selby and Mark Ashberry (Harrowby ward) and Phil Dilks (Market Deepings) to do whatever we can to minimise the impact of the changes planned by the Government on our most vulnerable residents and communities.
The people of Grantham have shown true determination and passion in the past to fight for what they believe in. If ever there is a time for us all to work together it is now.
Wishing all Grantham residents and business people the very best new year possible.
Councillor Charmaine Morgan
