With the current high gas and electricity prices many families, especially the elderly are going to struggle to keep warm this winter.
Warm Hub's are being set up to provide a place where people can meet and stay warm using buidings which have to be heated anyway.

I've been driving around California, Nevada, Idaho, Utah, New Mexico, Colarado and Washington in the United States, exploring Las Vegas, Los Angeles and the Grand Canyon.
I have toured France, visited Venice and Rome in Italy, Explored Switzerland, Germany and Poland, and driven through and around Budapest.
I have driven Tourist Buses, Coaches, big heavy wheeler's, and iconic American trucks, towing up to three trailers at a time behind me.
It hasn't cost me a penny in fuel or in accomodation, and ALL was done without breaking lockdown rules!

WOO is constantly developing, changing to meet needs, trends and situations.
I originally started WOO as a personal project and with just one town in mind, Welshpool the town where I live. The original site over its years of development had many rewrites and style changes. Many new ideas were added and tried out and gradually it took its current form.
I was soon approached by other viewers asking if their town could also be included, soon Newtown was added and then later followed by others. The interest grew and I had to decide on where I would take it to in the future.
The social distancing of the coronavirus epidemic halted the events pages, and during this period I noticed a distinct change in the way the site and its contents was viewed. Local users were still accessing the information relevant to them, but I was now getting a much wider audience, not just from Wales and the UK, but from the United States and other countries. These viewers were interested in the many topics covered in the 'Special sections', and I realised that WOO was now much more than just a local service.
I wanted to remain loyal to my local viewers, so I swapped things around a bit, making the 'Mid-Wales Information portal' as a section within the 'Special Sections' of the main site, still maintaining quick and easy access to information by those who live local to me.
The main WOO website now concentrates on providing useful information to a much wider world-wide audience, with a varied range of interest topics within the Special Sections menu.
