Have your say

Rushden residents have a chance to voice their opinion tomorrow (Thursday December 6) on the possible closure of the town’s ambulance station.

A meeting is being held from 6pm to 7:30pm at Arabica Coffee Shop, High Street, Rushden, where people will have a chance to put their questions to members from the East Midlands Ambulance Service.

The proposals, put forward by EMAS, would see the number of stations in the region reduced from 70 to 10 “hubs” - with the Rushden station facing closure.

EMAS said those hubs would be bigger and provide a better service.

The proposals are under a consultation period, which ends on December 17.
