  • Radley Room, Guildhall, Cardigan on Friday, 18th November 2022, between 12pm and 2pm 

The purpose of the event is to give the public the opportunity to talk directly with energy suppliers, utility companies, and other organisations who can offer advice and support on how best to manage rising energy costs and household bills this winter.     

Commenting ahead of the event, Ben Lake MP said: 

“The UK’s cost of living crisis is the primary concern for so many of us and I am keen to do my utmost to help residents in Ceredigion who are struggling to get by. 

“The crisis, and its impact on rural communities in particular, is an issue I continue to be vocal about on an UK level, having raised it in the House of Commons on multiple occasions, as well as consistently asking the Government to introduce more support for off-gas grid properties. 

“These drop-in sessions will be an opportunity to bring together experts on benefits, energy bills, housing and many other topics to the heart of our communities and allow residents to raise their concerns with me one to one.” 

Elin Jones MS added: 

“The current cost of living crisis is being felt acutely by people across Ceredigion, and I am under no illusion as to the scale of financial stress that many of my constituents are currently facing. 

“I hope that by bringing constituents and organisations together, we are able to provide a platform that gives people an opportunity to raise and resolve issues they are currently experiencing as a result of the ongoing cost of living crisis.”
