WARM SPACES: Rickmansworth library helps residents keep warm amidst cost-of-living crisis

 Published on: 4th January 2023   |   By: Bryn Holmes   |   Category: Uncategorized

Residents struggling to keep warm due to soaring energy bills and the cost-of-living crisis are invited to visit Rickmansworth Library.

The building’s heating will be kept on, and its doors will be open for anyone wanting to use its services over the winter season.

The library will also be running a new social event, Time Out Thursdays, every Thursday from 2pm to 4pm, where people can play puzzles and games, read newspapers and magazines, or simply have a chat with other local residents.

Rickmansworth Library is one of the locations included in a new directory, launched by Hertfordshire County Council and the county’s 10 district and borough councils, detailing public buildings people can visit to keep warm as temperatures drop.

The spaces include churches, family centres and community spaces.

To support this initiative, £100,000 worth of funding will be made available to local community groups, with grants of up to £2,000 to help them provide welcoming indoor spaces this winter.
