Essex Energy Switch
Earlier this year thousands of households and businesses signed up to participate in the Essex Energy Switch. It helped many people reduce their gas and electricity bills at a time of rising energy prices – with an average saving of £200 per year. Essex County Council are now offering residents another chance to make sizeable savings on their gas and electricity bills.
Residents have until 2nd February 2015 to register their interest (without any obligation) at www.essex.gvo.uk/energyswitch It is a completely free, easy, safe and secure way to cut their energy bill without wasting valuable time endlessly comparing prices on comparison sites.
Abandoned Shopping Trollies
Since Morrisons removed the £1 coin deposit from their shopping trollies, there has been an increase in the number which are abandoned around our town. If you see one where it shouldn’t be, report it direct to Morrisons on 512390.
