Nineteen locations across Woking have announced that they will be open as warm hubs from November 2022, helping to keep people warm and energy bills down this winter.
The combination of the cost of living crisis, rising energy bills, and climate change causing extreme temperatures in Surrey means many people are facing a struggle when it comes to heating their home this winter.
Surrey County Council is working to set up a network of ‘warm hubs’ across the county: free, safe, and friendly environments where residents can come to keep warm, meet with other people, and receive advice on cutting their energy use.
So far, nineteen warm hubs have been announced in Woking, including St Andrew’s Church in Goldsworth Park, Woking Library, Eastwood Leisure Centre and more. For more information and to view the locations of the hubs, visit Woking Borough Council’s warm hubs webpage.
The hubs will be open at varying days and times so please check the warm hubs webpage for full information. Warm hubs across Surrey will be operating until March 2023, offering hot drinks, games and crafts, and a supportive ear for visitors. By visiting a hub, residents can reduce their energy bills and carbon footprint by turning off their heating and help boost their health and wellbeing in the colder months.
