A workshop which could help those who are struggling to pay their energy bills is being held in Harborough.
The Sustainable Harborough group, in partnership with the Rural Community Council for Leicestershire and Rutland, is holding the free Energy and Water Workshop in town next Thursday, March 6.
It is being staged at the Methodist Church Hall in Northampton Road from 7pm to 9pm and will include a training session by the RCC’s Rural Action Team about the Energy Best Deal campaign.
The campaign is run by the national Citizens’ Advice Bureau with support from energy regulator Ofgem.
It will look at how to reduce energy bills by switching tariffs, payment methods or suppliers, how to get help from suppliers and the Government if paying bills is a struggle and how to save money by being more energy efficient in the home.
Sustainable Harborough will also be running a workshop on the night looking at improving the energy and water efficiency of homes; reducing fuel and water costs; and how to become more involved with saving energy.
The group’s project manager Gavin Fletcher said: “As energy prices continue to rise the need to become more energy efficient is becoming more and more important as home-owners constantly ask themselves how they can save money on their energy bills.
“This has led to an increased demand for workshops like these.
“This will be the first of a series which we will be running over the next year.”
Anyone wishing to attend the free event must book.
