Winter warmer at Community Café

An event at a community café in Childwall to help people cope with the worst of the weather proved popular.

The free winter warmer event took place at St David’s Church Friday Café on Friday 3 November.

It was the latest in a series of community events at the café, set up using the Neighbourhood Fund allocation for local Councillors Liz Parsons, Frank Hont and Jeremy Wolfson, which has run successfully for more than three years.

Councillor Wolfson said: “We had a very good turn-out of local residents who learned more about keeping warm, safe and healthy in the winter as well as information about energy costs.

“As we are coming up to the colder months it is important we let older and more vulnerable people know how best to cope with winter.

“I’d like to thank the council’s Healthy Homes team for their support in helping organise the event.”

There was information on a wide range of subjects including energy efficiency, switching energy supplier, fuel poverty and benefits.

Healthy Homes, South Liverpool CAB, Local Solutions, road safety officials, Health Trainers, Smokefree Liverpool and National Energy Action were just some of the organisations in attendance.
