Winter warmth

Have your say

RESIDENTS are being given tips on how to stay warm, safe and well during the coming winter months.

Durham County Council is advising locals to check whether they are eligible for a home insulation grant and to make sure they are on the right tariff with their energy providers.

It is recommended that people who are at home all day should leave their heating on low to keep a constant temperature.

Residents are also being advised to take advantage of free flu jabs available from their GP.
