Community groups, churches and parish councils rally to provide warm spaces in south Warwickshire as energy prices soar
AS temperatures plummet and the price of heating homes increases, it’s falling upon communities, charities and councils to step in to make sure there’s a warm place to relax for people this winter.
Village halls and community centres are just some of the venues where warm hubs are springing up, offering people a place to get some heat without worrying about the cost.
In the Stratford district, a network of warm hubs will be open this winter to residents of all ages. From a scout hut in Shipston and a church in Southam to a sports centre in Studley – there are more than 25 places designated as warm hubs. Some will also provide light refreshments, activities and the chance for some social interaction.
