With energy bills high on everyone’s priorities this autumn, the borough council is holding a series of roadshows to help people make sure they don’t pay more than they need to stay warm.
The ‘Beat your Bills’ roadshows will be held in Hunstanton, Downham Market and King’s Lynn.
The borough council’s cabinet member for people and communities, Cllr Sam Sandell, said:
“The cost of living will affect many families this winter and as a borough council we will do all we can to help.
“There are many schemes that will help people, for example for homeowners on low incomes there are grants that can pay for insulation to make the property more energy efficient, and we can help people to apply for these.
“We can give hints and tips to keep energy bills down – by making just a few simple changes at home people can save hundreds of pounds per year.
“So please come and talk to us so we can find out more about your home, lifestyle and energy use and working together we will try to ‘Beat your Bills’.”
The three roadshow events are as follows:
- Hunstanton: Friday 30 September at The Spinney 9am-5pm
- Downham Market: Friday 7 October on the market place 9am-5pm
- King’s Lynn: Friday 14 October on the High Street next to Boots 9am-5pm
The council team have organised these events to give advice about managing energy usage and bills but can also give advice if people have questions about other bills.
The council is also looking to bring forward an ongoing range of other initiatives to support west Norfolk communities who have been impacted by the rising cost of living. More information will be published soon.
