Talk Money Week involves thousands of organisations that improve financial capability across the UK. The theme for 2018 is financial wellbeing and the focus is on what people can to do to save money and get the most from their income.

County councillor Greg White, Executive Member for Libraries, said: “There’s a fantastic range of activities across the county, including talks, drop-ins, and internet learning sessions, so there are lots of ways to find out how you can save, avoid fraud and make sure the cash in your pocket goes further.”

Skipton Library will host two events: how to shop, save and stay online before Christmas, November 14, 10am-12.30pm; coffee morning offering practical ways to save money and make the most of your income, November 15, 10.30am-noon. Call 01609 534548 for further information about both events.

Skipton Library will showcase the Cheap as Chips collection of cook books – including titles by Jack Monroe, Jamie Oliver and Miguel Barclay – that offer advice on how to cook great meals on a budget.
