Now that the festive season is well and truly over, thoughts turn to the prospect of winter fuel bills arriving on doorsteps in January.
Hard to heat homes and energy prices make it difficult for many people to keep warm over the winter.
But in a bid to help locals and provide expert energy advice, Greener Kirkcaldy is taking its service out on the road, and will be visiting Methil Community Education Centre, Bowling Green Street, next Tuesday, January 27.
Anyone interested can go along between 4.00 - 7.00 p.m. to hear about ways to save energy and control their fuel bills this winter.
This is a free service and the Greener Kirkcaldy staff can help with things such as understanding energy bills and tariffs, advice on draught proofing and other energy saving measures, advice on grants and benefits you might be entitled to and much more.
Amanda Quinn, project manager, said: “Turning up the thermostat might be considered an option for some people.
“However, cranking up the temperature isn’t always the answer; you could be doing other things to heat your home more affordably and sustainably.”
Staff will be ready and waiting with tea and coffee for all your energy queries.
Alternatively, if anyone cannot attend the roadshow, the staff can arrange a home visit at a time that is suitable. Call 01592 858458, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or drop into their High Street Hub at 254a High Street, Kirkcaldy, Wednesday to Saturday 10.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m. to arrange a visit.
