Over a very difficult winter period with rising costs and energy prices, our community in Bramhall have pulled together in the most fantastic way.
Councillor Linda Holt has welcomed the many warm spaces that have been set up across Bramhall stating "The community response has been amazing, the drive by community groups across Bramhall to help and support the most vulnerable in our area has been wonderful and I would like to thank every single volunteer who has given their time up to get involved"
Local campaigner and Conservative Candidate Peter Crossen has been one such volunteer at 'The Mill'', a warm space right in the centre of the village.
Peter said "The warm spaces have been just as important in combating loneliness over the winter. We have provided a place for people who get very little social contact over the colder months, a chance to come along for a cup of tea and a biscuit and a good chat. For some it's the highlight of their week and a chance to feel part of our wonderful community" .
Community groups at Bramhall Community Hub, Bramhall United Reformed Church, The Library, The Mill and Bramhall Methodist Church have provided warm spaces throughout the winter.
Local resident and Conservative Candidate Fiona Bates added "Thank you to groups such as those at St Michael and All Angels Church who have also done a wonderful job collecting much needed donations for Chelwood Food Bank over the winter months"
