Faye Sellwood from the council said: "It’s important to get the support you need this winter, especially during the current cost of living crisis.

"Don’t start 2023 worrying about things we could help with now. There are many grants and support you may be eligible for.

"Come and have a free drink and chat. There will be so many people there to guide and help with you with any issues you might have.

"Do not struggle alone this winter, come and let us see how we can help you. Also there is a free raffle with lots of great prizes and freebies to keep you warm given out on the day."
