4,000 pensioners attended the annual meeting of the National Federation of Old Age Pensioners Association at the Central Methodist Hall on 11th November 1954. The Conservative Government had promised to restore pensions to the equivalent of their 1946 value but hadn’t and pensioners were pushing for movement on the issue and an increase in the weekly pension.
