October is about to start, a chill is in the air and the days getting shorter. Now is the time of year that we all start thinking about keeping warm for the winter. We can look forward to the hot chocolate and Autumnal aesthetic that moves in but with rising prices from energy suppliers and the increase in the cost of living, there are naturally going to be concerns around the coming winter. In Surrey, the average price for a kWh of energy is £10.05 (based on data from 2018). You can see how well a fireplace can heat a room or your house here. Using alternatives to heat your home may be a viable option depending on what resources you have available. Log burning stoves can be a cost-effective choice for those with a natural supply or a cheap wholesale option available. Gas fires are a modern alternative to a fireplace and typically will run cheaper than an electric or wood fireplace but don’t produce the same environment that a traditional fireplace creates.
What To Do In Surrey This Winter
All across Surrey, towns and villages will host fantastic Christmas events, have wonderful decorations and displays, and host markets throughout December. We’ve previously written about things to do in Surrey in the Autumn if you want to catch some of this seasons activities. You can also take a look at the Visit Surrey website and get this years list of fun activities and events that will happen across Surrey. This year there are some exciting activities including a favourite of ours; taking a llama for a winter walk – in Hambledon, there is a herd of llamas that visitors can take for a stroll through the Surrey Hills and soak up the beautiful scenery and create some wonderful memories with your friends and family.
