Town shows support for beds at Ellen Badger

Hundreds of people from the town and the surrounding district marched through the streets of Shipston in protest against plans to rebuild the town’s community hospital without inpatient beds.

The BBC reported that ‘despite heavy rainfall, about 700 people turned out for the demonstration on 5th August, with many dressed as badgers in honour of the Ellen Badger hospital which served the community from 1896 until 2022.’
