Mr Toast to pop up in Bolton 

22/10/13

People can find out how they can slash their energy bills when Mr Toast comes to Bolton.

The cartoon character has set off on a two-week trip across Greater Manchester and he will be in Morrisons, on Mornington Road, between 10am and 4pm on Friday, October 25.

Mr Toast will be accompanied by a team of experts who can tell residents all about the potential savings they can make as part of the Get Me Toasty scheme.

Under the scheme, Greater Manchester councils are working with three approved installers - Dyson Energy Services, Carillion and Forrest - to make homes more efficient by replacing boilers and providing new loft and cavity wall installation.

Home owners and private tenants living in certain post code areas or those claiming certain benefits may be able to qualify for the work at no cost.

Wherever possible, the team will make appointments there and then for experts to visit residents’ homes and carry out an assessment.

Bolton Council’s Cabinet Member for Housing, Waste and Recycling, Councillor Elaine Sherrington, said:  “With the colder weather about to start and rising energy bills the cost of keeping warm is a serious concern for residents.

“We want as many eligible residents as possible to take advantage of this scheme, which can help people make their homes warmer and more efficient as the winter begins and temperatures begin to drop.“I’d urge people to get in touch with the advice line or visit the website and find out whether they’re eligible for this free service."

Visit www.getmetoasty.com or call 0800 009 3363 to find out whether you are eligible for the scheme and to arrange a free no obligation survey.

Residents are also being asked to take photos whenever they see Mr Toast, and send their snaps to the Get me Toasty team – the person who sends in the best image for each day of the tour will win an energy efficient toaster. The tour started in Ramsbottom on Tuesday, October 15 and will end in Stockport on Wednesday, October 30. Mr Toast and the team will be in Morrisons, Mornington Road, in Bolton, on Friday, October 25, between 10am and 4pm. They are available for photos between these times.
