From meeting singing dogs to sticking Hands Off HRI stickers on Harold Wilson’s statue in St George’s Square, our day on the battle bus was nothing if not eventful!

Setting off an hour and a half late because of traffic on the M62 meant we had to miss out on our visit to Calderdale Royal Hospital - but also showed how one incident on the motorway can bring local traffic to a complete standstill.

We had a fantastic welcome from the Huddersfield Town lads at Canalside and some strong words of support from Academy Manager Mark Lillis.

Students taking a look round the bus and signing the petition at the University of Huddersfield, and a massive welcome, chanting, dozens of flyers handed out and more than 200 people watching the action live over the Internet at St George’s Square.

At least a dozen people were standing waiting and waving us up the hill at Holne Moss, probably the farthest point from the planned new emergency centre at Calderdale Royal, and a huge group including Dr Paul Wilding and singing dog Phoebe welcomed us at Slaithwaite Health Centre.

Our final stop was, of course, Huddersfield Royal Infirmary - where another crowd was waiting eager to speak to us and show their support.

And in between each stop we had so many beeps and waves from drivers passing our huge white bus. How could they miss us!

One thing is for sure, everyone we met along the way was behind this campaign.

Wee spoke to so many people who are incredibly passionate about keeping an A&E in Huddersfield.

Hopefully we helped to spread the word and keep the momentum going - save our A&E!
