Are you a woman born in the 1950s? Are you aware of the changes to the state pension that could leave you seriously disadvantaged?
Changes to the state pension were speeded up by this Government in 2011 and there is a huge lack of awareness about what this means for women. This means that many women have been unable to plan. It means many women will be entering older age in serious poverty.
Craig Mackinlay is meeting women, their partners, friends, families, to discuss this matter this Saturday.
The meeting will be held on Saturday, May 21, between 10am – 11:30am at Ramsgate Football Club Function Room, Price's Avenue, Ramsgate.

Your Labour councillors will be present at this meeting and want to present the case forcefully and comprehensively. If you would like your thoughts, your experiences, your fears represented at that meeting but you are not able to attend in person, get in touch with us.
We will be calling on Craig MacKinlay to Understand that the lack of proper notice for women amounts to unfairness and inequity.
