‘Free Insulation offer’ Musselburgh residents

Thursday 24th February 2011

10.30am – 12.30pm and 2.00pm – 4.30pm

Musselburgh Library


Drop in information event


Musselburgh free insulation offer – loft and cavity wall insulation FREE!

East Lothian Council and the Energy Saving Scotland Advice Centre have got together to provide free home insulation for homes in Musselburgh. Some people qualify for free insulation already, but most people would normally have to pay. That’s what makes this offer so special – anyone can get free insulation.
Why is cavity wall and loft insulation free for Musselburgh residents?

East Lothian Council secured funding from the Scottish Government so that everyone in Musselburgh can get their insulation installed free. However, the funding is limited and we want to make sure that all residents have the opportunity to take up this scheme before it ends.

Scottish author and poet Andrew Greig will join us at Haddington Townhouse on Wednesday 2nd March at 7pm to discuss his latest book At the Loch of the Green Corrie.
