Hunstanton campaigner collects more signatures
Campaigner Yvonne Bridger made an urgent people to sign the petition for the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) in King's Lynn.
Appealing to the residents in Hunstanton and communities along the coast in North-West Norfolk, Yvonne organised the opportunity to sign in person for those without online access.
With use of the cafe area in the community centre in Hunstanton there were three hourly sessions for people to come along and sign the petition.
Yvonne said: "It was quite a good turn out and offered people a choice as if you haven't got the internet people are able to come and sign.
"We had almost 100 signatures over the sessions and everybody signed up.
"To collect signatures we need in each and every town to get some paper signatures for those who can't go online.
"Jo Rust and her team so such a good job standing in Lynn in all weathers.
"We are still al long way from 100,000 to trigger a parliamentary debate and I last heard we have some 16,000.
"The powers that be will only listen unless the number of signatures reach 100,000.
"I am grateful to Hunstanton Town Council’s Clerk, Jan Roomes, and Hunstanton’s Mayor, Adrian Winnington, for allowing me to use the Community Centre for the purpose of collecting QEH petition signatures."
