A handy person service has been created by North Somerset Council.

The council believes the service will ensure older and more vulnerable people in Weston can live more independently and safely.

The work will be provided by AMS Electrical, and the council says the company’s experience will mean users can be assured of high quality workmanship.

The jobs on offer will include small repairs and improvements plus odd jobs around the home.

Cllr Dawn Payne, North Somerset’s executive member for adult social services, said: “The service will provide good quality and timely support to those who need it most.

“It will give residents the security of knowing they are getting a professional, trusted service which offers value for money and ultimately helps vulnerable people live safely and independently in their own homes.”

To access the service call 01934 520116.
