MBC Lead Cabinet Member for Communities and Public Engagement – Cllr Lottie Parfitt-Reid said:

Many of our residents contact the Council on a daily basis telling us how worried they are about the continued rise in the cost of living and ask for help and advice.  We all know that the price of food, utilities, heating, fuel and paying the bills continue are major concerns for so many of us and MBC is working with our partners to provide as much help and advice that we can, under one roof, to make it as simple as possible for people to get the support they may need.

I would encourage anyone who is worried about rising costs to come along to Marden on Thursday where they can get impartial and confidential advice.  Everyone is welcome at this free event, please come and talk to us and grab a hot drink and a biscuit.

All the advice the Council and partner organisations are offering is free, impartial and confidential; it is tailored to help each individual situation.
