Free tea, coffee or soft drinks are available to anyone coming along to The Footprint Trust’s Winter Warmer Roadshow, which is at venues across the rural areas during February.

On Friday 1st February they will be at the Post Office Cafe in the Church from 11.00, moving down the road to the White Horse pub at 12.00.

They’ll be at the White Mouse pub at 11.00 on Thursday 7th February, and then at the ‘Our Place’ event at West Wight Community Centre, Moa Place, Freshwater, from 10.00 on Tuesday 12th February.

Staffed by trained energy experts from The Footprint Trust, sponsored by National Energy Action’s ‘Warm & Safe Homes’ campaign and supported by Calor, these drop-in sessions will give you the opportunity to get free, impartial information to help save money on heating and water bills. The Footprint Trust also offers free home visits to anyone, anywhere on the Isle of Wight, saving an average of £200 per household! If you can’t make the date, or would like further information, contact The Footprint Trust via email info@footprint-trust.co.uk or call them on 01983 822282.

Speaking for the Trust, NEA’s National Heat Hero, Ray Harrington-Vail said,

“Despite the winter not be as cold as in previous years, expensive fuel bills are still a worry to many people. Looking forward to the warmer weather will not make the problem go away. Many people in rural areas are particularly hit by the fact that they are off mains gas, and have older poorly insulated homes. This is why we are holding events in Freshwater, Whitwell and Chale.”
