Hornsey Pensioners August Outing

On Wednesday 17th August we visited Myddelton House Garden.

Thanks to Barbara for organising this event. It was an enjoyable visit for twelve of us; the mini-bus was comfortable and the driver very capable and caring. The gardens had an interesting history and were certainly very beautiful and the weather was brilliant. See notice for pictures of us at the gardens.

 

On June 14th at the NPC Pensioners Parliament in Blackpool skeleton suits were donned.

The posters said

WANTED

A SOCIAL CARE SYSTEM THAT WORKS

FUNDED THROUGH TAX

GIVING DIGNITY TO ALL.

October 1st is International Older Peoples Day, and our group wants to highlight the crisis in social care. The message is Take notice of us BEFORE we die!

What can we do locally to demand that government takes responsibility for care services.

Come forward with your ideas!
