The election team has roared into life

Once the snow was melted by the rain on Saturday my team hit the pavements with the first Lib Dem Focus of 2010. We’ve made a good start, lots of feedback already and I was particularly pleased with the response to my comments in the Bromsgrove Standard on cold weather payments.

Nationally 1.7m pensioners (and 2,100 in Bromsgrove) are missing out on cold weather payments worth £25 for each 7 consecutive days of below 0C , £75 so far this winter, if they are on pensions credit. Pensioners are missing out if they have not applied for the pensions credit. My team and I are already helping some constituents in understanding the process and ensuring they are applying for all eligible benefits.
