Clifton upon Dunmore Conservation Group

img_20160924_121921Firstly, a big thank you to all those residents that volunteered to be part of the Conservation Group and the contribution made since its launch early 2016.  Due to work commitments however, the number of volunteers has reduced and, to achieve the ambitious targets we agreed at the launch, we need more people to help.

This is a sociable group that has been known to stop work for bacon sandwiches and a cup of tea!  So, if you are able to volunteer we need people that would be willing to restore conservation-group-1Noticeboards, clear weeds, paint, plant bulbs and anything else that will enhance the Parish of Clifton upon Dunsmore.

Contact Councillor Lesley Edwards on 07973849335 or email Lesley.edwards3156@gmail.com for more information.

Free helpline launches for a Warmer Rugby

Residents can benefit from free advice on staying warm and saving money on their fuel bills after Rugby Borough Council launched a new helpline.

The freephone number is available Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm, thanks to a partnership with the charity Severn Wye Energy Agency. The project aims to support households who struggle with cold homes or who find it difficult to pay their energy bills.

Cllr Emma Crane, Rugby Borough Council portfolio holder for communities and homes, said: “With autumn setting in and the nights getting longer, now is the time to make sure you will be able to keep warm and well this winter.

“By following some straightforward tips it is possible to keep warm and reduce your bills, and some householders may be eligible for grants or heating upgrades.

“I’m very much hoping that the Warmer Rugby project will help residents keep warm, stay healthy and save money.”

Caroline Harmon, project manager for Severn Wye Energy Advice, said: “Small changes to how we heat and use our homes can improve energy efficiency, keeping the temperature up and costs down.

“Other residents will find that they will save money by switching energy supplier or applying for a Warm Home discount.

“Our friendly advisors can help residents explore all of their options and help take the first steps towards a warmer home.”

Residents can find out more by calling the free helpline on 0800 500 3076 Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.
