Co-op Community Funding

The Co-op has selected the Meriden Residents Association as one of their causes for the second year.

The money we received really helped to subsidise our annual coach trip to Southend this year. Thank you to all those who purchased a Co-op membership card and phoned the Co-op or went online to select the MRA as your chosen cause.

However ! In order for you to help us again this year, you need to either phone the Co-op or go online to select us again – selecting us before is not automatically carried forward to this year, you need to do it again!

If you haven’t got a card already, please purchase one from the Co-op for £1 and phone or go online.

Hertfordshire Warmer Homes scheme

You could be entitled to free or discounted home energy improvements. The Hertfordshire Warmer Homes Scheme could help if you are on a low income or receiving certain benefits.

The ice, snow and frost in the winter months bring lots of challenges, but for many there are very real concerns about the costs of heating their homes.

Help is available for households with incomes of less than £20,000 (or applications from those on selected benefits) needing assistance to keep their home warm.

The Herts Warmer Homes scheme run in partnership with Hertfordshire County Council can provide help with home insulation or emergency heaters as well as a range of advice.

Anyone concerned about themselves or perhaps someone they know who could do with support should contact HertsHelp on 0300 123 4044 or
