As I understand it, people can currently apply for Pension Tax Credits to 'top up' their income once they are in receipt of State Pension, if they haven't other income, say, a works pension . The proposed £140 per week, if/when the new scheme was implemented, would be roughly the amount to which pen...

The IDS plan for reforming pensions: This, I think, would only apply to those who qualify for a State Pension after the start date for the [proposed] reformed scheme, so wouldn't change things for people who have applied for State pension before the start date. It looks as if the State Pension is to...

Someone suggested the other day I should write my memoirs ...
Well, 'rubbish, and disposing of rubbish' would be chapter two!
It's one of the most endearing and hilarious things about living here!

Aah! Yes, I understand now about the contributory health service ... will have a word with him next week, see how far he has looked into his entitlement.

Thanks scot47 - that could well be the case, but I should have said that this person is receiving a pension, not sure if that's disability or old age. If someone has qualified for a pension, doesn't it suggest contributions were paid?

Yup, can confirm it is like 101 dalmatians!

Have a wooden gate, reinforced with chicken wire for any gate-chewers, Tricia could do with a double gate system for leaving the premises, as I recall. And a few metres left over of 1.5 metre high chainlink, not very much, but ... just needs transport.

Hi Brian, have just spoken to Tricia, will take stuff over Monday, and the money for internet if no-one else more local can get it to her sonner. No problems, can't do PayPal anyway - it will be a small donation! :)

May depend how much access you have to big cities for some items. Definitely gardening tools, including small hand tools. Bed linen that actually fits your beds, if you bring them - mattress protectors can sometimes be found at Kaufland, but I haven't found them anywhere else. Shoes are great here, ...
