Enjoy cake and free, friendly advice at community event in Wisbech

Residents are being invited to drop-in for cake, chat, and free, friendly advice to help with the cost of living at an event in Wisbech next month.

Cost of Living

The Community Advice and Chat Event is being held at the Queen Mary Centre in Queen's Road, Wisbech, on Monday 6 February, between 10am and 12noon.

You can drop in to find out about the various financial support, help and tips to help you with rising household bills, and chat with fellow residents, with free tea, coffee and cake provided.

Organised by Fenland District Council, the event invites a number of local support and community organisations under one roof, including Rural Cambs Citizens Advice Bureau, energy advice charity PECT, the local Think Communities team, Care Network, Healthwatch and members of the Council's communities team.

Cllr Sam Clark, the Council's Portfolio Holder for supporting vulnerable people, said: "The Community Advice and Chat Event is an ideal opportunity for anyone who is worried about paying bills or money in general to come and find out more about the help and support available, in a friendly and relaxed environment.

"You can get advice, ask any questions you may have, share concerns and find out about support you may not even be aware of, or simply come and enjoy some free tea, coffee and cake with other people from the local community."

The event is completely free to attend. There's no need to book, and you can drop in anytime during the morning.

You can also find out more about the support available to help with the cost of living in the following ways:
