More about Beecholme

Beecholme is also the first postwar "mixed development" housing scheme in Hackney, with a mixture of houses and flats with the taller block having five storeys and containing one-bedroom and bedsit accommodation. It is featured in Volume 15 of Hackney History and was the site of Beecholme House, the family home of Maj. John André (d. 1780), who was executed as a British spy in the American War of Independence.

Join the mass opposition to a privatised NHS

Saturday 26 March at 11am join the mass opposition to the cuts programme of the Coalition government.

The Health & Social Care Bill they are pushing through parliament right now means the end of the National Health Service as a publicly administered and public accountable body.

It will finish the project started under Thatcher's government of turning the NHS into a commercial market
where a mass of big commercial companies engage in cut-throat competition with each other for the biggest share of the £100bn NHS budget.

"Keep Our NHS Public" is joining with other health campaigning groups, doctors, health workers and others to form a "Health Contingent" on the march - led by the big blue "Fight for our NHS" banner.

Meet at the corner of Middle Temple Lane and Victoria Embankment
at 11 am on 26 March
to form up together and join the march.
