Winter heating advice on offer


ELECTRICITY REBATE: Bicester Citizen’s Advice Bureau is offering advice on electricity rebates to pensioners and others on mean-tested benefits.

The CAB is advising residents that any electricity supplier belonging to the Warm Home Discount Scheme must give a £120 rebate on electricity bills this winter to eligible pensioners.

Other vulnerable customers could also be eligible.

Mary Kelly, manager of the Bicester CAB at The Garth in Launton Road, said: “Many vulnerable people are finding it increasingly difficult to meet the rising costs of electricity and are worried about keeping warm this winter.”
