Good for you and great for the planet 

 

ask your council what energy saving schemes they have. 

 

 

these options may qualify for funding or loans. 

 

Save energy, money and help the planet by improving the energy-efficiency of your home. You can make small lifestyle changes that are free, spend a few pounds on slightly bigger changes or invest in a bigger improvement to your home - the choice is yours.

 

 

 

 

LITTLE STEPS ARE FREE AND EASY AND CAN MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE:

 

 

● Read your energy bill and find out if you have the best deal. 

● Only fill your kettle with enough water for what you need.

● Don’t leave anything on standby and switch things off when not in use. 

● Don’t leave the hot tap running when washing up, use a dishwasher or bowl.

● Put on a jumper and fluffy socks and turn the thermostat down by one degree.

● Only use the washing machine when you have a full load.

● Keep your oven door & light clean so that you don’t need to open the door.

● Defrost your freezer regularly, fill empty areas with newspaper or polystyrene.

● Close your curtains in the evening to keep your heat in.

● Speed up your shower time.

 

 

 

SPEND A FEW POUNDS & REDUCE YOUR ENERGY BILLS:

 

 

● Put draught stripping around windows, doors and letterbox.

● Change to energy-saving light bulbs.

● Change to an efficient shower head.

● Understand and update your heating controls.

 

 

 

 

 

INVEST IN YOUR HOME TO MAKE BIGGER CHANGES:

 

 

● External Wall Insulation keeps your heat in, so you'll turn down your thermostat and run your heating less.

● Under floor Insulation keeps the rising cold air out and your heat in the home.

● Double Glaze with Argon gas filled sealed units that will increase the thermal performance.

● Insulate your roof with care - never, ever let a cowboy spray insulation into your park home roof.

● Install a new boiler or central heating system or controls.

● Renewable technologies are possible for park homes too.

Feeling Lonely at christmas

 Christmas can be a difficult or even lonely time for many of us. Statistics released by Age UK show that half a million older people in the UK expect to feel lonely this Christmas. Not all of us have a family to spend time with and some us just cant face a "big family Christmas" but still feel lonely or down. Try a simple step and look online for people who may be feeling exactly how you feel or understand what you are going through. If you feel lonely, or just need someone to talk to, here are some places to start. Whether you just have a look round or join a conversation is up to you.   www.contact-the-elderly.org.uk/news/contact-the-elderly-in-december  Join their Be Our Guest campaign.  www.campaigntoendloneliness.org/feeling-lonely offers advice on what to do if you feel lonely. www.elefriends.org.uk is an online community where you can be yourself, share and be heard.  www.samaritans.org are always available to talk 24/7 about whatever is on your mind.

Heatwave Advice

Stay cool and hydrated in this hot weather. Government advice is to stay out of the sun between 11am and 3pm.  Drink more water than you usually do. Take a cool shower or bath if you are over heated. Cool your home at night by opening windows and doors if it is safe to do so in your area.  Keep curtains closed and blinds down during the day. To find out more from Public Health England download their useful guide here.​
