They built fabric of our country

May I congratulate the Observer on its excellent report on the meeting of residents at Beaufort Court against cuts to the adult social service care budget.

Residents at Beaufort Court comprise a cross-section of society and include war veterans, bedridden, blind and other disadvantaged persons each of which have given their lives building the economic fabric of our country.

May I urge your readers to support these wonderful people by writing to their Member of Parliament and East Sussex County Council asking that they disassociate themselves from the proposed cuts to the adult social care budget.
