Cold Weather Payments

For those readers on qualifying benefits, you can check whether or not you are yet eligible for any Cold Weather Payments on this direct gov website.

Payments are made when the average temperature for where you live is recorded as, or forecast to be, zero degrees Celsius or below over seven consecutive days.

Also from, who qualifies for Cold Weather Payments:
If you are in receipt of Pension Credit, Income Support, Income-based Jobseeker's Allowance or Income-related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA), you may also be able to get Cold Weather Payments.

You get £25 for each seven day period of very cold weather between 1 November and 31 March and it is paid automatically, you do not need to apply for it.

So, if you want to check whether you are due to receive one, you can do so here.

Hello, Incurable Hippie,
I just left a comment on your flickr page, but fear you may not check that regularly, so am trying this.
I am seeking your permission to use the image of your stitched felt Peace Symbol in a book that I am writing entitled Peace Fibres: Stitching a Soulful World.
I would need a high resolution version. I would cite you as artist and your website as source.
I will look forward to your response. Thanks for considering this.
