South Gloucestershire Council have advised that: 'If you need extra help keeping warm this winter, you can pick up a free warm pack from any South Gloucestershire Library or One Stop Shop.'
The packs are for families, single adults and pensioners who are struggling to heat their homes to 18°C and usually include:
a hot water bottle
a thermal flask
Age UK are also working with SGC to give out a limited number of warm packs to people aged 65 and over.
