Protest Over Phoneix House Closure in Blandford
8:12am 4th February 2014
Dorset members of the union UNISON will protest this morning at plans to close a high dependency residential care facility built just 2 years ago at a cost of five million pounds.
They'll be at Phoenix House in Blandford at 9.15 this morning (Wednesday 4th February).
It's part of a wide range of protests today across the country aimed at what they say is the dire state of local government pay and the disastrous impact of cuts on local jobs and services.
Yesterday Dorset County Council announced a three month consultation into the future of Phoenix House
