Speaking in support of the ‘Get Ready for Winter’ campaign, Caroline said:

“At this time of year, it is really important that we’re fully prepared for the cold weather ahead so I am very keen that people across the Gosport constituency understand what help is available for them. Being energy efficient and keeping bills under control is so important and I would urge everyone to get in touch with their energy supplier to find out what support is available to them.”
