Public service union strikes close Marlborough schools and x-ray department

The twenty-four hour strikes called by unions to protest against the coalition government’s changes to public sector pensions have closed Marlborough’s schools and Savernake’s x-ray department.  Though visible signs of the strike just don’t exist – Marlborough doesn’t do picketing.

St John’s, St Peter’s and St Mary’s schools are all closed for the day.  Across the county seventy primary schools are totally closed and another twenty-seven are partially closed. Nine secondary schools, four special schools and six academies are closed. Four secondary, four academies (including Pewsey Vale) are partially closed.

Youth centres are closed across the county as the Council cannot guarantee full staffing levels.

Marlborough leisure centre is open and very early this morning they were playing badminton there.  But the Activate sessions planned for the leisure centre to provide care for children with working parents were cancelled as there was no interest expressed.  These sessions were not free.

All Savernake hospital’s community health services were working normally except the x-ray department.  The x-ray departments in all of Wiltshire’s community hospitals were closed. Appointments for today have either been brought forward and patients have had their x-rays, or their appointments have been re-scheduled for later.

Marlborough library will open as usual.
