EXMOUTH residents swapped traditional light bulbs for new energy efficiency ones at the Magnolia Centre last week.

The event, set up by East Devon District Council's (EDDC) Environmental Health Team, was part of a three-year project which aims to help households across Devon to cut their fuel bills, reduce carbon emissions and improve their overall health.

The programme also aims to raise awareness of the grants and discounts available on energy efficiency products as well as giving advice to help people reduce their energy consumption.

Councillor Jill Elson, EDDC's portfolio holder communities, said: "This initiative should make a real contribution to cutting people's energy bills."

She added: "I'm particularly pleased that it is being launched in Exmouth, which is the largest town in Devon.
