Great news- letter

We were able to get out our PAIL newsletter today - in time for the October 1st international celebration of older people and the 10th anniversary of the age equality act. Am really pleased it looks so good and professional and links to our great new site. All this on a micro budget and a great set of active volunteers as trustees, exec and committee members.

Still lots to do and now it looks like the covid 19 as we thought is back with a bang. so little learnt - so many lives in danger. The govt just lurches from one mistake to another blaming everyone but themselves while privatising and centralising the best chances we had to overcome the disease giving our health over to those with no professional health or medical knowledge but well connected and good Brexiteers- the next disaster waiting for us on January 1. Shame we seniors get the blame for voting in the Tories and Brexit - well a lot of us from London did not and are happy to work with progressives of all ages to try to save lives, protect the NHS and rebuild our lives and economy.

It should not be forgotten how important the contribution of we seniors - the silver economy is to getting out of the recession - but until we feel safe , not because of govt spin but because of science based protections, we will not be returning to the high street or to work
