2011 Felixstowe Not Quite Heaven?

Home | Search and Site Map

On the Bartlet  Convalescent Home 85th Anniversary a bed push took place along the Felixstowe Promenade on 5th June 2011. This started at the Sea Road Car Park and proceeded all along the promenade to the Cotman Hall  which is behind Mrs Simpsons tea rooms. Here a display and health forum took place together with the cutting of a celebration cake. This was to show that opposition to the selling of the Bartlet in order to build luxury flats is still very much alive and well. The chronic need for the Bartlet to continue its use as a health facility has been brought to public attention with the recent disastrous report concerning Ipswich Hospital failures.
Many Bartlet supporters consider that the PCT would do well to concentrate on health issues rather than become property entrepreneurs
