Campaigners against the closure are meeting tonight and I will be attending to offer my full support to the residents, families and workers.
However, I have received some really disturbing information. I am informed that some of the residents of The Pines have NO next of kin or family.
Therefore, their home for many years and the bonds they have developed with other residents and workers is their family and they are about to be kicked out having to rely on the authorities that they are adequately rehoused.
This is just not right. It is proposed the home is closing this October so we have time to fight it. You may not live in Greater Manchester or be directly affected but show your support to all those affected and sign their petition so I can go there tonight and tell them thousands all over the UK are thinking of them.
I promise to keep you all informed. Thank you http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/51014
