Advice on how to use less energy to brings down bills and reduce our impact on the planet has been shared in Bridport.

Volunteers from Bridport and District Citizens were active in helping to promote Big Energy Saving Week, a national campaign aimed at helping people to reduce their energy bills and to ensure everyone receives the benefits to which they are entitled.

The campaign took place throughout last week and at Morrisons, South Street, there was a stand where posters and leaflets were handed to shoppers about how to save energy.

Information was also provided about the Keep Warm for Less project, which operates every Thursday from the Citizens Advice offices, also on South Street.

Working with the Energy Saving Trust, Citizens Advice has produced a series of recommended actions that can help reduce the amount of energy used which leads to lower bills as a result.

Rovarn Wickremasinghe, chief officer of Bridport and District Citizens Advice, said: "We are most grateful to Morrisons for allowing us to have a stand in their supermarket. Using less energy is a win win, as it brings down bills and reduces our impact on the planet by using less resource."
