The article addresses local poverty wages and cuts to school meals provision. It gives full details our public meeting in Weymouth on Saturday (28 April – see below). Please circulate the link to friends, colleagues and neighbours, with an invitation to attend. We have also been interviewed about Saturday’s meeting by Wessex FM.
Today’s Echo also carries a major piece on jobs and wages in W&P: it seems that at last these issues are headlining consistently in local media. Good luck to councillors who are challenging Dorset County Council tomorrow to tackle the crisis in W&P.
We have excellent speakers on Saturday. Discussion will be led by Lynne Hubbard, an expert in nutrition, and by Ali Chown, a teacher and Divisional Secretary of the NEU in Dorset.
We look forward to seeing you at the meeting: “Government cuts to Free School Meals: Thousands of children will go hungry”: 28 April, 2pm in the Old Town Hall, High West Street, Boot Hill.
Weymouth and Portland needs a pay rise – our school children also need food in their bellies to function properly at school. Get behind the cause to help make a difference to everyone in the borough!
