Freezing Pensioners

Comment Jean Farmer 18th May 2015

Allow pensioners to live at a temperature of above 39F in the winter. Why , If you have lived in a grade 2 listed building all your married life, should you be forced to live in freezing temperatures in your old age ?

I will be 72 years of age in December .For the last 2 years at least, me and my companion, have been forced to sit in one room, when we could not get the temperature above 39 F in spite of spending £60 a week on solid fuel.My rates are £253 a month.

I would be better off living in a shed with a parrafin heater, than trying to live in, and maintain this listed building, which I love, but the powers that be, force me to live in a freezing environment, because it suits them

Why does this matter?

Because pensioners need looking after, besides listed buildings.
