Full details about pick-up times will be added to the description and emailed to people making reservations nearer the time but we would expect to leave from Stroud Bus Station on Merrywalks at 9am and return to Stroud by 9pm at the latest. We may be able to pick up from Chalford and Cirencester. Get in touch to let us know if you require this: 07734 058789.

#OurNHS is a loved and cherished part of every community. Come out and celebrate with us on 30th June. Bring your family, your friends, your loved ones and anyone who cares about the future of healthcare in this country.

The NHS belongs to us. Access to healthcare is a human right. Our post-war generation created a National Health Service that delivered world class care to all on the basis of need. For 70 years #ourNHS has set a shining example to the world of what can be achieved when we make the choice to look after the collective good.

But #ourNHS is under attack. A decade of austerity, underfunding and top down reforms have stretched our health service to breaking point. Services are being cut and cancelled, hospitals and wards are closing, there are staffing shortages across every part of the system and increasing parts of our health service are being outsourced to private companies.

Never has there been a more urgent time in her 70 year history to stand up and defend what is yours. For what the last generation built. You have paid for it. You deserve it.”
