RESIDENTS have until the middle of October to take part in a scheme which could save them money on their energy bills.

They can register an interest in Colchester’s Big Community Switch by finding a recent energy bill and visiting by October 13.

They will then receive an email later this month with the chance to switch electrical or gas suppliers and potentially save hundreds of pounds a year.

If they agree, everything is sorted out by scheme organiser iChoosr.

Information is also available by calling 01206 507555.
