“Why should Walsall’s pensioners be forced to downsize? A question I received via social media a couple of weeks ago. The mature member of a Walsall society came across my article I wrote at the start of the year (see article HERE), about Walsall pensioners feeling trapped in their homes.
There are around 24,000 home owning OAP’s in Walsall.
After working hard for a life time and buying a home for themselves and their family, the children have flown the nest and now they are left to rattle around in a big house. Many feel trapped in their large homes, hence I dubbed these Walsall home owning mature members of our society, ‘Generation Trapped’.
So, should we force OAP Walsall homeowners to downsize?
