Campaigners who hold weekly vigils outside Grantham Hospital in protest against the overnight closure of its A&E, are calling for people to join them on Wednesday – the 69th birthday of the NHS.

Protesters have camped outside the hospital entrance in all weathers every Wednesday for the last 11 months, between 6pm and 9pm.

Alison Martin, of Grantham, said: “As next Wednesday (July 5) is the 69th birthday of the National Health Service it would be good if the vigil is an extra big one and we would like to encourage as many people as possible to join us on Manthorpe Road outside the hospital.

“You don’t need to stay for long, just pop along and show your support.”
