Friday was our energy efficiency event in Wood Green. We had the Energy Savings Trust, benefits advisers, EAGA (the organisers for me), the fire service offering free fitting for smoke detectors and advice on safety, and so on.
Those who came I hope will have received advice from the various agencies there that will help them save money on their fuel bills in particular. I ran a surgery for two hours and it was interesting that the people who came to me were not those who would necessarily have come to my usual weekly surgery. Made me think, that although my surgery is generally in one or other of the local libraries – I may try out a wider range of venues. Some of our councillors do this already I believe – but the library, especially Wood Green, is very well set up for disability access and other facilities . Nevertheless – I think this is probably worth trying after the New Year.
