The Essex Energy Switch is a collective energy switching scheme aimed at helping residents save money on their gas and electricity bills. The scheme has been running for six years and has already helped over 16,000 households in Essex save over £3.7m on their energy bills.
The registration window for the Essex Energy Switch opened on 3 December and closes on 10 February 2020. Residents can register for free online at www.essex.gov.uk/energyswitch. Once the registration window closes, energy companies will bid at an auction to see who can offer the lowest energy tariff. Anyone who has registered will then be contacted directly by the winning company with more details and information on how to switch. Residents that registered or switched through the Essex Energy Switch last year, will need to register again this year. Once registered, there is no obligation to switch providers.

The Dance Network Association has been successfully managing dance classes for older people for over 5 years in and around Essex, working with those living with Dementia, those living with Parkinsons as well as in supported and sheltered housing schemes.
Research by The New England Journal of medicine conducted over a 21-year period found that dancing frequently reduced the risk of dementia by 76% – the highest percentage of any activity in the study. The World Health Organisation states that Older adults should do at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity throughout the week, and so through these sessions we believe we have an impact, one that we wish to continue into 2020 and beyond.
We would love to extend an invitation to you to join at at one of the following classes this December.
Please let us know if you can attend so that we have enough mince pies and space!

Roadworks are due to start Monday 25 November to improve the Frating and Weeley Roundabouts on the A133. This scheme is designed to improve the route from Colchester to Clacton and includes safety improvements between the two roundabouts.
The works are being carried out by Jacksons Civil Engineering and the works are due to complete next spring.
Specific traffic management arrangements, see: A133 Colchester to Clacton route improvements and share on the @essexhighways twitter feed. The works are due to be carried out in a phased approach and involve lane restrictions. A limited number of temporary overnight full road closures will be needed for specific pieces of work.
These works are reflected on one.network
