We are all very proud of our achievements over the years.
Campaigns

 

 

 

 

We have had many successes both local and national – from Pensions, Transport, Health Issues to Toilets, Seats in the Mall and so many more. We received good news in 2009 as the Crystal Palace Toilets in Hunter Place were re-opened and Nell was asked along to the opening ceremony.
We have taken part in numerous campaigns not only locally, but in London at the House of Commons, Blackpool, Glasgow, Edinburgh and many other places. It has been a learning experience for us all, not only the committee but for our regular members too.

We have written hundreds of letters to those in authority like the Pensions Minister and the Post Office Authorities re closures,Tesco re closing of wee Tesco’s, Mall Manager re seats in the Mall, Mr Salmond, Scotland’s first minister, Nicola Sturgeon, Health Minister, David Cairns MP and others too numerous to mention, as we always say it is not all Banners and Placards – there are other ways. Recently we have given our support to John Muir and Wendy Metcalf for Damiens Law regarding harder punishment for knife crimes, and the closure of the Tea Bar at Inverclyde Royal Hospital.
