Coping with winter weather: drop-in event 

A drop-in event advising rural communities how to cope with harsh winter weather is being held in Wrenbury this Saturday (November 10th). 

There will be free advice and guidance from various Cheshire East Council services as well as the police, fire service, Wulvern Housing, Cheshire Community Action and several voluntary groups. 

This will include how people can insulate their homes for free, how to save on fuel costs and to share ideas on how to keep warm, well and safe. 

Information is also being sought from residents to locate potential winter problem areas in their communities, such as roads or where they feel people are most at risk of power cuts. This will help the Council to direct resources accordingly. 

Presentations and workshops will be held as part of the event, which takes place between 11am and 3pm at Wrenbury Village Hall, Cholmondeley Road. The postcode is CW5 8HG. 

For more details on this Nantwich Local Area Partnership event, call 01270 685854.
