I have driven route this eve looks ok though bit busy at Oldham have ideas
for diversions we can discuss on route. EH it will be good to cut thru the
centre of Halifx and rejoin A58 afterwards.
I was going to knock up some flyers for the bed push tomorrow but other
versions will be great.
We also need someone to do some for the Kissitdemo.
Thee dummy is a good idea, any offers to do this?. ex consultant Phil Thomas
is willing to go on bed for last mile or so of bedpush.
Amy phone Paul re lift on 07813675759
We still need sounds at the demo Ive been trying to contact Pundit, Terry
can you help here or anyone else?
The bed push is starting from Bradford, on 12th July...from the site of the original psychiatric hospital there, and is continuing till 14th July where there will be a Mass Demo at Piccadilly Gardens at 1pm.
Any volunteers would be most appreciated.
