Stop cuts expanding to the rest of Staffordshire: 8 October 2015 Meeting

Update from Chris Wood…

 

Along with local organisation DeafVibe, we have run a local petition which has now been signed by 5,000 Staffordshire residents, triggering a discussion at a full county council meeting. This is scheduled for the 8 October 2015. There will be a 5 minute overview followed by a debate between councillors.

 

It’s a public session so please do join us.
