Councillors visit Nascot warm hub

1 Feb 2023

This winter, some residents will be facing the decision between heating and eating or making decisions to cut things out of their budget to pay their energy bills. The Conservative government’s bad handling of the economy has added pressure, and the energy bill support will not go far enough to help those who need the most help.

That is why Watford's Liberal Democrat Council has been working with local community groups and organisations to launch warm, welcoming spaces. At these warm spaces, residents can meet others, stay warm, and save on energy bills.

Welcome Spaces are available at Rutland Lodge, Nascot Road (Fridays 10am-12noon) and Watford Library (usual opening hours), and the Salvation Army is running a Homework Club at its St Albans Rd HQ on Wednesdays, 3.30-6pm.

Nascot Councillor Mark Hofman, said “"It is vital that local people and families are supported through the cost-of-living crisis, and although the council faces its own financial challenges, we have to prioritise and focus on those that need our help the most.

“The warm hubs are there for those who need them during these cold and difficult winter months, I would encourage people to visit them. The hubs are offering the opportunity to come together to stay warm, and perhaps enjoy a cup of tea and a biscuit.”

Children with adults get free drinks and for 50p a jacket potato & topping. A full list of warm spaces, and what is on offer and their opening times available at Welcoming Spaces
