More dates have been added to the borough council’s ‘Beat Your Bills’ roadshows, this time focusing on locations in King’s Lynn
Two events have been added to the programme at the Discovery Centre, North Lynn, in partnership with Freebridge, and two further council events are planned at Centre Point, in Fairstead, and the community centre in South Lynn.
The roadshows offer help on all aspects of cost of living, including information about how to access benefits, grants, discounts, save money and more.
Mark Whitmore, Assistant Director for Health, Wellbeing and Public Protection, said:
“The arrival of the warmer months is welcome for many people who are affected by the cost of living but that does not mean their financial difficulties are at an end.
“We want to reassure our residents that help is available and we want to make sure they know what they are entitled to and how to get it.”
The remaining roadshows will be held across the borough on the following dates:
- Feltwell (village fete) – 17th June 10am-5pm
- King’s Lynn (Discovery Centre) – 23rd June 2023 10am-2pm
