With the north of the county still affected by cold weather, the NHS in Northamptonshire is to put on a series of events to give advice and practical tips on how to keep warm.

The outreach team will be giving out winter packs to those who may be vulnerable to the cold or know someone who may need help. The packs include carbon monoxide detectors, thermometers, and a practical checklist to help people ensure they are warm this winter.

The campaign is also encouraging local residents to check and ensure that vulnerable neighbours, friends and relatives in high risk groups are looked out for this winter.

The outreach workers will be on Kettering High Street on Wednesday, January 30 between 12pm and 4pm and at Sainsbury’s in Wellingborough on Thursday, January 31, again from 12pm to 4pm.
