Alex Easton MLA and Councillors Bill Keery & Councillor Mark Brooks have today launched a petition calling on the South Eastern Trust to keep Northfield House Residential Home in Donaghadee open.

Speaking today Alex Easton MLA said:

“ I and my colleagues firmly believe this is a wrong decision by the SE Trust, we believe that it is vitally important that we oppose this proposal by the SE Trust and give the residents of Donaghadee the chance to show their opposition to the SE Trust proposals to close Northfield House, but to also show that we support the three permanent residents and their right to live in Northfield House, and that we also show our 100% support for the 19 staff that do such a fantastic job looking after the three permanent residents and the respite care patient’s.”

“We are today calling on the residents of Donaghadee to come out in there hundreds, and sign the petition and help us to fight this unnecessary proposed closure of such a valuable facility”
