The Hackney Winter Warmer is back again

Hackney Homes’ ever popular winter warmer event is back. For another year running, hundreds of residents will descend onto Hackney Town Hall’s Assembly Rooms on Friday 4 December from 11am-3pm for the annual line up of free activities and advice tailored for the older resident.

Specifically organised for the over 55’s, the event connects residents with a range of services and free advice from local and national organisations. This year more than 40 different organisations will be at hand on the day offering advice on staying warm, healthy and active over the winter. Energy advice organisations will be helping identify the best tariffs, health organisations will be giving advice on staying physically and mentally healthy and offering appointments for eye and hearing tests, and Hackney Community College will be highlighting courses available locally.

Hackney Homes and Hackney Council services, including the ASB and Estate Safety Team and Estate Management will also be available on the day to offer individual housing advice.

As well as free advice, residents will have the chance to grab some fantastic prizes at the fun and games hub and will be able to get involved in the free activities on offer, including trying out an exercise class or a stationary bicycle. With free massages, manicures, and not to mention some fantastic giveaways, this event promises to have something for everyone and will be bigger and better than before.

This event gives our older residents the chance to come together and socialise, whilst gaining some useful information on reducing their energy bills and keeping active and healthy throughout the winter months.
