TG supports WASPI - Women Against State Pension Inequality

WASPI is a single issue organisation which is campaigning for compensation for women who have been unfairly treated by changes in the state pension age and the way they have been implemented. They are not, however, opposed to the principle of pension equalisation itself.

The summary attached here, produced by WASPI, explains the issues. WASPI has already successfully campaigned for Government recognition of the problem and an All Party Group has been set up including members of all political parties.

The trustees believe that this is a matter of social equity rather than party politics so are happy to respond to a request for support from WASPI by asking members to get involved. WASPI local co-ordinators are willing to visit Guilds in their areas to talk about the issue and the help needed.
Contact details can be found by clicking here.

WASPI has an excellent website with details of the latest news and planned actions www.waspi.co.uk, and we hope many of you will get involved with their work, even if only by spreading the word that state pension ages have changed - and please do ensure that you spread the word, as it is important that women know exactly when they will receive their state pension.

80s Night -

In 1983, Cindy Lauper told us that ‘Girls just want to have fun’ and we proved her right at our 80s night on 19th August.

We were a cheerful group with some of our number clad in 80s ‘going out’ favourites of bright wigs, leg warmers and fingerless gloves plus oversized earrings and clusters of necklaces. We were asked to consider our 1980s style and ponder on some big questions of the time like Who shot J.R? Was Michael Fish right when he said there would be no storm? Could Alvin Stardust teach you how to cross the road, when seen wearing a glove with a ring on the outside of it? And was a bum bag the best way to keep your valuables safe?
