The 'warm spaces' in Droitwich to help residents during cost-of-living crisis

Droitwich Editorial 6th Nov, 2022   0

DROITWICH CVS has put together a list of warm spaces in the town where residents can go during the winter months.

Each of the venues will enable people to stay warm, save cash on their gas and electricity and socialise with others.

Droitwich Library offers a warm and welcome space – now with extending opening hours – for work, study, reading and research or just to meet with friends.

In addition to the library’s opening hours, this service is available between 8am and 8pm Monday to Saturday.




Visit the library to become a member or upgrade an existing service.
