A number of information days are being staged at the Market Centre in Crewe in support of Cheshire East Council’s Spread the Warmth campaign.
The Council’s Crewe Local Area Partnership, along with Crewe & Nantwich Senior Forum, is hosting the events where visitors can collect their winter planning kit bag, which are subject to availability and eligibility.
These kits contain information booklets on staying warm, saving fuel costs, information on boiler repair grants, flexi transport and welfare services, as well as a hand warmer and porridge oats, among other items.
Also, subject to eligibility and on completion of a questionnaire available on the day, essential items like clothes, hot water bottles, hand warmers and fleece blankets will be given out.
Thermometers will also be distributed, giving people an idea of when they should turn their heating on, plus information guides including tips on how to stay warm in the home, health information, emergency contact numbers, prescription services and how to plan journeys.
The events are on:
· Monday, December 17 (10am-2pm);
· Monday, January 14 (10am-2pm);
· Thursday, January 17 (11am-1pm) – slow cooker demonstration only;
· Friday, January 18 (10am-2pm).
