Scarf is reaching out to residents in the south of Aberdeen as householders brace themselves for a further rise in energy bills.The charity – established in the city in 1985 – is hosting a free drop-in energy efficiency advice surgery at:
Milltimber Community Hall (Blue Room), Wednesday 19 October, 5pm – 7pm.
Householders will get the chance to talk to an advisor to find out what the price cap changes and increasing bills means for them, as well as options to improve the energy efficiency of homes to combat the rising costs.All information provided is free and impartial.
Scarf wants to support those households by helping them find ways to fight rising costs.”The advice session has been arranged jointly with Aberdeen City Council as part of a project aimed at improving the energy efficiency of properties and helping city residents lower their bills.
Councillor Marie Boulton, adds: “Having been a Councillor in Lower Deeside for the last 15 years, it is the first time I have heard so many people from all areas of my ward genuinely concerned about the cost of living but more so the fear of the rise in energy bills. I would encourage all residents to try and make it to the drop-in session. We are all facing rising energy costs, let us try and help you make things a bit easier by attending a session which could provide some solutions to your rising energy bills.”
A similar event took place at the Hub Café at Cults Kirk Centre on Tuesday 4 October, and a further event will take place at Culter Village Hall in the near future.
