An event will be held next week to provide advice and information to help people in Thetford stay out of fuel poverty.

The Winter Wellbeing Fair will be held at the Abbey Neighbourhood Centre and is part of the national Warm Homes Campaign which is run by fuel poverty charity National Energy Action.

The fair will see the Flagship Group - which provides homes for affordable and market rent - team up with representatives from Citizens Advice Norfolk, Age UK Norfolk, Campaign for Rural Norfolk, Shelter and Norfolk Wellbeing Service.

The charities will be on hand to provide advice on energy efficiency and also practical hints and tips on insulating homes.

In Norfolk, the average fuel poverty gap is £374 - this is the amount a household would need, per year, to make their energy bills affordable.
