Despite the governments energy cap and with constantly rising costs in food and other utility bills, many will be finding this winter a particularly difficult time. Working in partnership with Surrey County Council, ‘Warm Hubs’ have been set up, in and around the borough, as safe spaces where people can go to be warm, enjoy hot food and drinks as well as meet with friendly faces and garner advice from accessing grants to energy saving tips.
Epsom Methodist Church, Ashley Road has been supporting this initiative with ‘Warm Wednesday’.
Every Wednesday, up until March, anyone is welcome to drop in. From 9-2pm the community café serves complimentary cups of tea and instant coffee while at lunchtime, a free bowl of soup and bread is available and at 2pm you can enjoy a slice of home-made cake or biscuits with a cuppa. There’s also an after-school club after 3pm providing a quiet, warm space for children to do homework and younger ones to play and explore. A warm simple meal will be served.
