Hitting the cold spots - Winter 2013-14 campaign
For the third winter Hampshire County Council with its partners, are running the Hitting the Cold Spots campaign, funded by Hampshire County Council Adult Services and Public Health Departments, which can help and advise you on ways to keep warm and healthy this winter.
Keeping your home warm and you and your family healthy can be expensive and sometimes difficult. Cold weather not only make life uncomfortable but can also lead to serious health problems such as respiratory diseases, asthma, depression, heart disease and strokes.
