Community Winter Action Days


FREE winter action days are being held in Tendring to support residents through the colder months. 

Community Voluntary Services Tendring (CVST) have organised two Community Winter Action Days. 

Both days will include a winter warmer giveaway, family support, help for older people, benefit and housing advice, food support, cost-of-living advice, resources to keep your home safe and warm and chances to talk to other organisations for help and support through the colder months. 

Held on Wednesday 18th October, the first Winter Action Day will run from 1pm to 3pm, at St Christophers Church Meadow Way, Jaywick. 

This event will also have an opportunity for you to bring your bike down for a free bike check thanks to Essex Pedal Power.  

The second event will be held on Wednesday 15th November, from 10am to 12pm, at CVST’s Dovercourt and Harwich Hub, 276 High Street, Dovercourt, which will also include a school uniform bank for families to use. 

Organiser, Lee Knight, resilience team manager at CVST said: “Every year we run a Winter Warmth Project to offer a range of support to residents and families in Tendring through the coldest time of the year. 

“We know that staying warm helps residents to stay well, and are pleased we have been able to support so many people over the years to be resilient through winter. 

“This year people will already be concerned about how they will cope when the temperature drops, especially with the rise in the cost of living. 

“These Community Winter Action Days are a great opportunity for people to get the help and advice they need to stay safe and warm during the colder months. 

“We will be giving away Winter Warmer items as well as advice, and will have other organisations on hand offering support and services.”
