On 28th May I joined local councillors, trade union members and activists to petition shoppers at Seacroft Tesco store to support our local campaign to 'Save The Green' care home.
Hundreds of local residents signed up to show their support.
Local Cross Gates resident Laura Denbigh, whose grandfather is being cared for at The Green, has recently been featured in the Yorkshire Post on her campaign to save the home.
'The Green' has just been rated 'Good' by the Care Quality Commission, demonstrating as a council-run home it is better than its private sector competitors.
The Council is due to make a decision on the future of The Green on 22nd June, with the Health Scrutiny Board recommending against closure.
