Warm Spaces are established in the heart of local communities where people can be assured of finding a safe, warm, inclusive, and friendly environment in which to enjoy refreshments, social activity, information and advice. People can come along on their own or with a friend and talk to others over a hot drink and maybe a hot meal. These spaces promise a warm welcome to anyone who might be struggling with the cost-of-living crisis, struggling to heat their home, or unable to pay their energy bills without compromising on other essentials, such as food, rent or hygiene this winter.
Bury Council have dedicated webpages for if you're struggling with the costs of living, providing information on the support and advice that’s available. Visit their Let’s Manage Tough Times webpages here
The Village Greens Community Fridge at Prestwich Library at the Longfield Centre is open to everyone who wants to share food that would otherwise have gone to waste. Surplus food is donated from supermarkets, local food businesses, producers, households and allotments.
The fridge is open from 10am to 4pm from Tuesdays to Fridays, and 10am to 1pm on Sundays.
