Twerton Winter Warmth
A new service from Age UK is helping older people in Twerton to stay warm and save money.
With fuel bills going up by at least 15% and Winter Fuel Payments decreasing, how to stay warm and keep the bills down is a cause for concern for a few of us this winter. Twerton Winter Warmth is there to offer advice and support:
Advice on free or discounted insulation and central heating improvements
Free room thermometers and energy saving light bulbs
Plus the full range of Age UK information, advice and other services
You can give them a call for advice over the phone or request a free home visit. Phone 01225 466135 or 07527 113082. Also, look out for their information stalls in the Rose Cottage Community Centre and Cafe at Twerton High Street.

More trees for Roundhill
On Saturday 21st November, a team planted a selection of young trees on the south side of Roundhill. Some trees had been planted last year but not all had survived.
If we can grow a copse of native English trees here it will be attractive and good for wildlife.
The More Trees for Bath group together with the Friends of Roundhill group, have been maintaining the small plantation throughtout the year, doing occasional weeding and cutting back the grass around the trees as required.
Some of us got to work on Saturday, digging away the thick turf and carefully putting the fragile saplings in.
We estimate that about 50 trees were there from the last planting and we dug in about 30 new ones. Thanks to the leader from the Cubs at St Barnabas Church who came and helped as well.
Lunches for senior citizens
The Southside Centre is encouraging older residents to make use of its cafe as a place to go and perhaps do some activities. For this reason, a series of special meals for senior citizens have been organised as shown below.
A lot of older residents get bored and have nothing to look forward to in the week. So if you have an elderly relative, friend or neighbour, why not pass on this information and encourage them to go along?
