Community Action Northumberland (CAN), together with Co-ordinating4Age in Glendale, is organising an Energy Roadshow next week.

The session, next Tuesday (December 8) from 3.30pm to 6pm in the Cheviot Centre in Wooler, is open to everyone and there will be vital opportunities to improve the heating in many homes in north Northumberland in what is predicted to be a harsh winter.

On offer is information on the new Central Heating Fund and the Home Heating Cost Reduction Obligation and Community Challenge.

There are also free Smart energy monitors available donated by British Gas as part of the Community Action Partnership.

And Ready to Switch will be there – in one instance in the Rothbury area, they helped a household save £1,000 a year. All people need to do is bring along a fuel bill.

Health advisers and crafters will also be in attendance, together with other service providers.

“For some people in north Northumberland, this session could be life-changing,” said Christine Nicholls, from CAN.
