Rally and March Statementby Save Huddersfield A&E Committee
As many of you will be aware there will be a Rally followed by a March through Huddersfield on 27th February.
The meeting time is set for 11:30am in St. George's Square.
A number of speakers who have shown support for the campaign have been invited to speak at the rally, including:
Barry Sheerman, MP for Huddersfield
Jason McCartney, MP for Colne Valley
Paula Sherriff, MP for Dewsbury and Mirfield
Jo Cox, MP for Batley
Holly Walker-Lynch, MP for Halifax
The Save Huddersfield A&E Committee has taken on board the feedback from the previous rally on Saturday, January 23rd and they have approached a company who have offered the use of a suitable PA for the occasion that will meet the requirements of such a large event.
The discounted cost of this is £200.
The Save Huddersfield A&E Committee are using a large proportion of their remaining funds, and the plan is to bolster these by asking everyone present to very kindly consider bringing a small, voluntary donation to be collected by Stewards using collection buckets on the day. Thank you.
Press Enquiries Sub Group
The Press Enquiries Sub Group has been busy generating as much local press interest as possible, including inviting coverage from:
The Huddersfield Daily Examiner
The Save Huddersfield A&E Committee is hoping that you can all help to make this one of the biggest events Huddersfield has ever witnessed by inviting all your friends and family, particularly those who will be most affected by the proposed cuts to services.
Events and Stunts Sub Group
The Events and Stunts Sub Group has been working hard to finalise the route plans amidst difficulties with ongoing roadworks, the safety of everyone involved is paramount. The final route will be made available as soon as possible.
It will be a short march in a loop around the town centre with stewards marking the route and making sure of the crowd’s safety, there will be some places along the route where observation is possible for those who are unable to march the whole distance covered.
The Save Huddersfield A&E Committee urge you all to be as creative as possible with your protest banners but respectfully ask that they are all family friendly.
An idea was put forward by someone from a sub-group at last night's committee meeting for everyone to try and display as much blue and white in whatever form available: Face-paint, scarves, hats and anything else that you can think of.
