Filtonvoice August 2019 edition online here
Filton is set to lose two vital services - the Filton Park preschool and the Northville Family Pracice GP.
Money is at the heart of both decisions - too few patients at Northville and land being earmarked for development at Filton Park.
For years, Filton residents - often led by the same small band of community minded residents - have had to fight just to keep basic services.
We lost a GP and a pharmacist and only community action saved the Shield health clinic and library. Other services have seen cutbacks.
We are calling on our MP, South Glos councillors and town councillors to unite to fight these decisions or ensure alternatives are guaranteed. This is not a time for party politics. We are also calling on ALL residents to be part of the protest.
These decisions will affect our children and the next generations.
Our voices must be heard and action taken.
This is our town and our future - we cannot allow this to happen.
