Residents encouraged to ‘Bring your Bills’ to Hook and Chessington Library

Kingston residents are being encouraged to see whether they could save money on their gas and electricity this winter by coming along to a free, independent ‘Bring your Bills’ advice session.

The session takes place at Hook and Chessington Library on Tuesday 15 December between 11am and 1pm. 

Councillor Cathy Roberts, Cabinet Member with responsibility for Housing at Kingston Council, said: 

“With the cost of fuel rising, I recommend residents to come along and see if they can find ways of reducing their gas and electricity bills. It’s quick and easy, simply bring your latest bills with you to the Library.

“We have carried out 300 home visits last year as part of the Warm Home, Better Health initiative and were able to save up to £350 a year on bills. Switching to a cheaper, paperless tariff using direct debit is just one of the ways that we helped lower costs.

“My hope is that even more residents will take advantage of this fantastic opportunity to see whether they could save money this winter.”

If you’d like to visit between 11am and 12 noon, please book a 15 minute appointment by emailing [email protected], calling 020 8547 5006 or visiting the Hook and Chessington Library.
