Have your say

THERE is still time for older people in Hampshire to claim a winter fuel payment to help with their heating bills.

Households with someone born before July 5, 1950, are entitled to £250 towards their winter fuel bills, and households with someone aged 80 and over can get £400.

Last year more than 200,000 households in Hampshire received a payment.

Those who have not claimed already are being encouraged to get their entitlement.

Claims must be received no later than March 30.
