Warmer Winter

A drop-in advice event for keeping warm and saving money returns to Redditch next week.

Redditch Borough Council is once again bringing partners together at Redditch Library to offer heating and energy advice that can help people to have warmer winters.

Act on Energy will be on hand for advice on energy bills, how to access loft and cavity insulation grant funding, and replacing old, inefficient boilers.  Age UK will cover home energy checks and other advice, and NEW Lifeline will represent the community alarm service that provides peace of mind to vulnerable people and their families.

Herefordshire and Worcestershire Fire and Rescue Service will be in attendance for home fire safety advice and Care and Repair Worcestershire will be also be there for advice on how to get help with essential home repairs.

Cllr Mark Shurmer, whose portfolio covers Housing, said: “As winter starts to set in and temperatures get set to drop, the Warmer Winter programme to keep warm and save money is as relevant as ever. At last year’s events we saw some people save as much as £200 a year off their energy bills. Why not come and see what could be available to you?”

The event is on Thursday December 7 from 9.30am until 1.00pm.

If you want help at the event to switch energy suppliers and save money, please make sure to bring along an energy bill along.

If you can’t make the events but want energy saving advice, please contact Act on Energy on 0800 988 2881 or advice@actonenergy.co.uk. For general information about the events, please contact kath.manning@bromsgroveandredditch.gov.uk.
