TADLEY residents hoping to cut their energy bills will be given a helping hand next week.

Staff and volunteers from Tadley & District Citizens Advice Bureau will be out and about helping people to get to grips with energy costs as the cost of living rises.

The group is offering free advice to help consumers save energy, cut their bills and get all the support they are entitled to as part of Big Energy Saving Week – a national campaign running from January 27 to January 31.

Linda Harvey, advice services manager of Tadley & District CAB, said: “We’ll be helping consumers to check, switch and insulate to bring their energy costs down.

“The rising cost of living means that more and more people are finding that their household budgets won’t cover day-to-day essentials.”

The national campaign is being run by Citizens Advice and is supported by charities, the Government and the energy industry.

Consumers are being urged to check they are on the best deal, to consider switching tariff or supplier and to take up help to insulate their homes.
