Free advice is available on keeping your home warm and dry.
Kapiti District Council, Energywise Otaki, Citizens Advice Bureau, Otaki and the Wellington Sustainable Trust have arranged for free thermal curtains for Otaki residents holding a Community Services card.
Good curtains can go a long way to keeping your home warm during winter. Power bills can be lower just by having good thermal curtains. Thermal curtains are curtains that are lined with two or more linings.
If you have a Community Services card and are interested in taking advantage of this offer, application forms can be picked up at the Otaki Citizens Advice Bureau.
All residents of Kapiti who hold a Community Services card can apply to the Wellington Sustainable Trust for free curtains. You need to give the measurement of your windows and it may take a while for the curtains to be made as they are very busy this time of year, so apply before winter sets in.
