Ayrshire WASPI had a great day at Ayrshire Colleges conference held at Ayr Race Centre on the 16th August. The campaigning group were given a table to assist 1950s born women who want to raise a complaint against the Department of Work and Pensions and their maladministration in communicating the changes to state pension age.

The group provided 22 women with the template letters required to begin their complaint process. Membership of Ayrshire WASPI is growing daily and at the previous meeting held in August at the Kilmarnock Railway Station the room was filled to capacity.

Growing confidence in the campaign is continuing with cross party group MPs planning a sponsored bill next month forcing the government to review the current pension arrangements for 1950s born women affected by the accelerated pension age changes.

The date of the next meeting is being held at Kilmarnock Railway Station meeting room on Saturday 9th September at 10am to 12noon. The cost is £3 to cover refreshments and room hire. New members are most welcome.
