Tim Farron with CAfS Andrew Northcott and LEAP visit householderA householder who took up our draughtproofing and energy-saving advice service in April was treated to a parliamentary privilege.

Tim Farron, MP for Westmorland and Lonsdale, joined CAfS for a LEAP energy advice visit to Margaret from Kendal.

Tim wanted to see first hand how this national service is benefiting residents, delivered in South Lakeland by CAfS, thanks to support from South Lakeland District Council. Margaret received tips on ways to keep her home warmer and we fitted low-energy LED bulbs and radiator reflector panels to bring her electricity and heating bills down – all free of charge.

Andrew Northcott from CAfS was also able to give Margaret advice on switching energy tariffs, which could save her more than £290 a year compared to her current tariff.

Our thanks to Tim for coming along and for his interest in the scheme. If you or someone you know in South Lakeland could benefit from energy advice, support to change tariffs, free LED light bulbs and energy-saving equipment, please get in touch.
