The People’s March to ‘save the NHS’ was given a rousing welcome as it passed through Mansfield and Ashfield this week.

The 300-mile trek organised by a group of Jarrow mothers in protest against what they say is the privatisation of the National Health Service is inspired by the 1930s Jarrow March against poverty and unemployment.

Hundreds of people from the Ashfield and Mansfield area including health workers politicians, trade unionists and patients marched with banners held high through Sutton Kirkby, Newstead, Hucknall and Bulwell before arriving at Nottingham Forest’s Recreation Ground.
