Reports

Ron has written a report on the NCC Unison demo, the Conservative Party Conference Manchester demo and also on the Nene Commissioning/Healthwatch ‘consultation’ event held this week. Please could everyone read it. His conclusions on the health event are very important, as they confirm that cuts are likely to be made and also that budgetary constraints may be used to justify the privatisation of health services. REPORT FOR NTUC NEWSLETTER 2.

UkCut2Red Rope Walk Details

After a short walk along the Grand Union Canal we will arrive at Foxton Locks, an amazing complex of ten locks with balancing ponds constructed in 1814 and the remains of a steam powered incline barge lift that was in use from 1900 to 1911. The walk then passes through rolling pasture land via Lubenham,and on to Saddington with a possible pub stop (no own food).

The next stage of the walk joins the Leicester Round Footpath and is hilly and very scenic with superb 360 degree views from Smeeton Hill. The high ground ends after we pass through the village of Gumley and the final stretch of the walk is easy walking over grasslands and back along the canal to Foxton Locks.Please bring some food to be eaten al-fresco. Any dogs must be kept under close control at all times due to livestock in the fields.For any further details and possible car share from Northampton, please contact Roger at – altstratgroup@gmail.com
