First May I thankyou for visiting our campaign petition and also may I thank everybody who as signed it and of course thankyou to the people who sign it. This campaign means so much to so many people it is in our opinion a travesty that the closure of these homes are allowed to happen. We aim to ask questions on what avenues have been explored to keep the homes open. With your support this will make getting the answers everybody who as worked in the coalfields deserve. Kind regards Jeffrey Bird.
