An advice day takes place today (Thursday) to prepare for what’s been described as a “harsh winter” by Isle of Wight Community groups.

Veterans Outreach, Southern Gas Networks, Southern Water and the Isle of Wight Council Trading Standards will all be on hand to talk to about how best to prepare for the colder months.

Islanders are invited to the Riverside Centre from 11am to 3pm.

As previously reported by Isle of Wight Radio, parking has changed at the site, you can find the details here.

Citizens Advice, The Footprint Trust, People Matter and their Islehelp partners are holding a free Winter Is Coming event in November.
