Welcome to the Association of Mirror Pensioners’ website. The site has been revamped so as to be more user-friendly to the many visitors who use their mobile phones and tablets to surf the web.
Here you’ll find just about everything you want to know about us, and much more.
Trawl through the site, find out who founded us and why, who we represent, who we are and what we do.
The Association does a lot. The active and experienced committee members all worked for Mirror Group Newspapers, all titles and in many different departments. The committee meets about four times a year in London, and the Scottish contingent also meets regularly.
Annual meetings are held in London and Glasgow and one could be held in Manchester if there is a demand.
Our Parliamentary Patrons and a brilliant lawyer support and guide us when we need them. We have a growing contingency fund in case we need to go to law and to cover other possible costs.
We keep in touch with Trinity Mirror, the Board of Trustees and the Pensions Office. Only we can do that on behalf of all pensioners and deferred pensioners. There is nobody else.
This website is constantly updated with news and information affecting the AMP and its members. The All Our Yesterdays page is popular with nostalgia lovers, and the Members’ Noticeboard carries news of reunions, members’ exploits etc. Look out for frequent postings..
We publish two newsletters every year, an 8-page one in the spring, and in autumn we publish a 12- or 16-page A4 full colour magazine. We welcome your contributions to them, and of course, any items you care to send in for inclusion on our website. You can use the Contact Us page.
Members love to hear about experiences in the good times… and bad times too, at the Mirror Group in the old days. Tell us about your life now. Use us to make contact, if we can, with old friends.
If you aren’t already a member, just click on the “Join us” button. It’s in your interest to help us to help you if help is needed.
The website is your website. Tell us what you like about it…and what you don’t. Above all… please use it and enjoy it.
