Nick Perry, the Lib Dem parliamentary candidate for Hastings & Rye, has taken his campaign for fairer parking charges at the Conquest Hospital online.

He has set up a Group on the social networking site Facebook called 'We want fairer parking at the Conquest Hospital!'

Nick, who has welcomed the hospital trust's move to introduce limited pay-as-you-leave parking at the Conquest from the end of February said,

"I have been stunned at how effective campaigning using websites like Facebook has been over the last few months.

"There was the BBC South East Today campaign for a blood donor for the lad on holiday in Mexico; and in Hastings, there has been a successful Facebook campaign to bring a particular film to the Odeon.

"If these things have been achieved then there is potential to demonstrate just how much local feeling there is about the parking situation at the Conquest.

"I know that not everyone is online, but we all know someone who uses the computer - please log on and lend your support!", he said.
