WISH (Warmer Improved Somerset Homes), Wessex Water and South Somerset Council are holding a Save it! Energy, Water & Money event at the Balsam Centre in Wincanton on Tuesday 1st March between 12.30pm and 3.30pm.

WISH is a long-standing fuel poverty programme helping people in Somerset. Over the past 6 years it has given one to one support to over 4500 households in Somerset, helping people to keep their homes warmer and reduce their winter fuel bills. There will be experts on hand to give you advice on how to switch energy suppliers and reduce the bills. The average savings from switching is £240 but in many cases it can be much more. We can even help with switching on the day!

Everybody is welcome – just drop in on the day. Please bring along your bills and we can see how much you could save.

For more information phone 0800 082 2234 or email .
