The Management Committee for 60+ "Sixty Plus"
On Wednesday 18.5.94, I went to see Ms Geraldine Timlin and
Mr Ian MacAulay at the 60+ "Sixty Plus" offices, regarding
my application for a written reference, to assist me in my search
A copy of this invitation from Ms Geraldine Timlin is enclosed.
At this meeting, Mr MacAulay appeared to be playing the part
of an observer and said almost nothing. I found Ms Timlin's
reasons for not giving me a reference an insult to the mind.
The reference that I wanted was essentially an up-dated version
of the reference that she gave me a year ago, a copy of this
is enclosed, the information it contains is as true today as
it was then.
Ms Timlin gave two reasons why she would not provide me with
a reference, it is difficult to decide which reason stinks of
corruption the most. It beggars belief that she even thought
of trying to get me to accept her rationale.
Quite some time ago, Ms Geraldine Timlin allocated a job to
me that was a bit different, it was a job that was going to
"pay" me. At this time, Ms Timlin was aware that I
was in an anxious frame of mind, because I was getting reminders
about my unpaid TV licence. I am unemployed and have been prosecuted
once already for non-payment.
This job was far bigger than anything that was normally undertaken
by 60+ "Sixty Plus" as part of it's "practical

of the house is certainly correct. The task to be undertaken,
was to wash from top to bottom, and then re-paint a fire damaged
room. It took about a week to do.
Although unemployed, I did not quote Ms Davies a price for
the job from the outset. I realised that she herself was not
rich, and left the price of the job "open". I felt
sure that I would be offered enough cash to buy my TV licence,
plus a few beers. That would get me off the hook and I would
When the job was completed, Ms Davies said:- "I have no
money just now, but there will be something for you at the office
next week". I did not approach her again, but waited to
hear from her. She eventually came into the 60+ "Sixty
Plus" office, I was not around, but she spoke to Ms Timlin.
I was told by Ms Timlin that Ms Davies wanted to see me, to
give me a couple of packets of cigarettes as payment for the
work that I did for her. A couple of packets of cigarettes?
At the time, this appeared to be as
