“Our Let’s Save Energy Events in Newry is an opportunity for local people to gain important practical information on ways they can manage their energy consumption and save on their energy bills. Simple changes to your daily routine can make a big difference and I urge as many people as possible to attend one of the drop in events and take advantage of our knowledge and expertise.
