Labour’s local Deputy Leader Councillor Warren Morgan joined local Labour and Co-operative Councillor Jeane Lepper and over 20 Labour activists from the Holllingdean and Preston area, together with members from Hove, at the busy Fiveways shops in Brighton on Saturday morning 10th March campaigning about the Council’s Budget  and the Coalition’s proposals which will devastate the NHS.

Local Labour Party member Pete Gillman said,
People were queuing up to add their signatures to Labour’s petition calling on the Conservatives and LibDems to ditch their plans for the NHS prior to the crucial votes in Parliament over the next week.
