Here are our best tips for this season:


  • During colder weather see our page Warm Homes, Lower Bills for keeping energy costs down while keeping your home warm. 
  • Springtime can bring health-related challenges; colds & flu can linger in the early months and hay fever can kick in as it gets warmer. Read our Seasonal health - spring page for advice.
  • It's the time of year to get gardening! Check out our Gardening page for advice and tips for everyone, whether you are an expert or a novice.
  • As the weather gets warmer, consider getting out more. See our Get Involved and Groups & Charities page to find out about local activities. Over 55’s can check out our Out & About page.
  • Make the most of food that is in season, especially produce that is grown in this country. See the BBC website’s page on seasonal food for more information and recipe ideas.
