I am the current Chair of the Haringey Pensioners Action Group, Tottenham and Wood Green Branch. This group was founded more than 16 years ago by a group of pensioners concerned at the constant erosion of the pension and pensioners rights. The group swiftly grew to more than a hundred people. They now produce their own newsheet "Pensioners Punch" which is distributed free to libraries, community centres, One Stop Shops and many other places where pensioners visit.

The average age of the group is now 70 but we are still very active, participating in demonstrations and the lobbying of Parliament.

The Haringey Pensioners hold a rally every year in the Civic Centre, Wood Green. This year it will take place on Wednesday September 8th starting at 1.30 pm. The speakers will include the local M.P's Bernie Grant and Barbara Roche.
