Mary Feilding Care Home
Several newspaper reports alert us to the sale of Mary Feilding Care Home, Highgate, where Hetty Bower, our founding member and Britain’s oldest anti-war campaigner, died aged 108 in 2013. Some of the present residents of over 100 years old have 3 months to find a new home.
Our MP, Catherine West, asks us to sign her petition here to halt the plans.
