Keep Warm And Save Money


6:49am 21st October 2014

Advice on how to keep warm and save money is up for grabs this week.

Its Big Energy Saving Week in Dorset and Dorset Community Action are holding a number of advice sessions across the county.

One of the key issues will be how you can switch to the right energy traffic.

Simon Thompson from Dorset Community Action says it's a thing we're often reluctant to do.

"I think people are a bit nervous about switching because electricity, gas and other forms of power are quite fundamental to people and they don't like to mess with it.  And I think what we are going to do is give them some ideas so they can make the change if they want to."

On Tuesday 21st October
Community Lunch and Energy Advice session running from 12 Noon until 2.30 in St.John's Church Hall, Fortuneswell, Portland  supported by Weymouth & Portland Borough Council
