Residents of Reepham are invited to learn more about staying well this winter at Broadland District Council's Heat and Eat event on Saturday 21 January from 10am to 12pm at St Michael’s Church community hall in Reepham.
The event, which will be held alongside the church’s usual Saturday coffee morning, will offer residents top tips on how to stay warm and well during the colder months.
Representatives from a number of local organisations including Broadland District Council’s Handyperson+ Service, the Reepham Good Neighbour Scheme and Joy of Food will be on hand with advice for residents about what services have to offer.
Broadland District Council’s energy team advisers will also be on hand to offer tips on how to save money on energy bills. For more accurate advice, it is suggested that residents bring their most recent energy bill with them to the Heat and Eat event.
Free slow cooking workshops will also be on offer to some residents. Slow cooking is an easy and energy efficient way to cook meals. The workshops will show residents how simple and inexpensive these meals are to prepare. Residents will have the chance to try some new recipes and taste the results.
The slow cooking sessions are free to anyone who is in receipt of means tested benefits and is over 65 or has a long term health issue. All ingredients will be provided and participants will be able to take a new slow cooker away with them for free.
