Parents and their children at Freshfield Children's Centre get advice from Sefton Central Labour MP Bill Esterson, Sefton Sustainable Energy officer David Colbourne, Affordable Warmth Worker Phil Povey, David Lynch from National Energy Action and Cllr Tony Hill.


Parents at a Freshfield Children's Centre got some top tips on how to keep warm during a special visit.
 
Formby Labour MP Bill Esterson together with members of Sefton's Affordable Warmth team and National Energy Action spoke to parents at the centre on the best ways to save money while also keeping warm.
 
Each parent also received a Sefton Affordable Warmth goody bag.
 
Bill Esterson said: "Families right here in Formby and throughout Sefton are feeling the pinch right now because of household fuel bills are spiralling out of control.
 
"While this is an issue which the Labour Party and I are battling in Parliament, the Warm Front campaign, which includes the Sefton's Affordable Warmth team is providing key essential advice to householders in the borough on how to keep their homes warm.
 
"There are still millions of people living in the UK, many right here in Sefton, who are simply struggling to keep their homes warm and protect their families from the ill effects of the cold.
 
"People living in homes which are not sufficiently heated can experience a number of detrimental health impacts and reductions in general wellbeing.
 
"The Warm Front campaign ensures that there is advice and help for anyone who needs it."
 
Sefton's Sustanable Energy Officer David Colbourne said there is always help and assistance for people in Sefton.
 
David said: "Working together with National Energy Action and the Affordable Warmth team, we will always ensure that there is help for people in the borough.
 
"Everyone is being affected by the rocketing price of fuel, but there is help available for lots of people, particularly people who are vulnerable in our community.
 
"People need to know we are there to give advice and support to anyone who needs it."
