Local charity, Surrey Community Action has teamed up with Hale Community Centre to open Surrey’s first Warm Hub.
A Warm Hub can be any community venue – a village hall, a community centre, a church, a parish room – which provides a warm and friendly environment for people to meet over refreshments and find out how to keep warm for less. Surrey Community Action aims to introduce a network of hubs across the county as part of its Warmth Matters project which offers practical advice and independent guidance to help people stay warm, stay healthy and save money.
The Hale Hub, which is supported by ecopare, will enable people from the local community to benefit from free and impartial energy advice and help to save money on energy bills. There will also be the opportunity to attend a ‘switching session’ which will help people to understand how much they could save on their energy bills by switching supplier or tariff.
Visitors to the hub can enjoy free cake, tea, coffee and hot chocolate too, while meeting other people from the local community. People will also be able to take away blankets and hot water bottles depending on the availability of donations.
Sessions take place on the first and third Wednesday of each month between 11.00am – 1.00pm at The Hale Community Centre... see more in the Surrey Community Action Press Release
