A local community group run by seven volunteers has achieved local notoriety and aroused national media interest just 10 days after it was formed to campaign against the closure of a Hounslow care home.
Rage Hounslow was formed on 7 April after Hounslow council threatened to close John Aird House care home. Founder members Deborah Reed, whose mother is a resident at the home, and Gareth Evans, a local resident, immediately launched a David and Goliath battle against the council.
"I was so annoyed when I found out that they were going to close the home that I had to do something," said Evans.
By day three, the group held a meeting which was attended by 48 people, including seven councillors, the local newspaper and investigative TV reporter Donal MacIntyre and his film crew.
It is believed the local Labour party, which supported the closure, has called an emergency meeting to deal with the challenge.
