Despite this week’s sizzling temperatures, North Kesteven District Council is reminding people that winter is only just around the corner and now is the time to take action to make sure that local homes stay as warm as possible.

The council is part of the county-wide organisation Lincs 4 Warmer Homes which connects residents with funding and installers to keep people warm while still keeping energy bills under control.

The group can also signpost people to where financial advice and support with debts is available.

North Kesteven’s executive member for housing, Coun Ian Carrington said: “Despite the warm temperatures we have been enjoying now really is the time to be getting ready for winter. Arranging for work to be done takes time and I would

urge everyone who thinks work need to be done to get in touch as soon as possible.”
