SOMERSET WASPI GROUP
APPG Formation
​​INVITATION TO LOBBY AT WESTMINSTER - DEVON, CORNWALL AND SOMERSET - 29TH NOVEMBER 2016

Palace of Westminster - 2.30pm
 
After a very successful meeting with Geoffrey Cox, MP for Torridge and West Devon, the Devon WASPI group are delighted that members have been invited to the Palace of Westminster for a meeting with their constituency MPs to lobby for fair transitional arrangements to our State Pension Age for women born in the 1950s (on or after 6th April 1951).


Geoffrey has extended this invitation to the Cornwall and Somerset WASPI groups. We will also be representing other WASPI supporters in these areas, who are unable to come due to illness, disability, lack of finances, work commitments, caring duties with family, including those who care for their parents as well as their grandchildren, caring for their young adult children who have learning difficulties or physical disabilities. The list is endless of what women near or past their expected pension age are committed to. Their stories will be told by those who are able to get to Westminster by a portfolio of "Retirement dreams - stark reality".

We would be grateful for any photographs members would like to send to take to this event that shows just that. Have you had to sell your house? Have you a dream trip that you had planned to make? Do you have grandchildren that you were going to look after? Also photographs of WASPI supporters in the Devon, Cornwall and Somerset regions would be helpful. We will report on how the meeting went and hope that there are MPs in other regions who are prepared to meet with their constituents and discuss ways forward. Wish us luck.
