Scrap­page scheme for old boil­ers

Evening Express (Extra Edition) - - FAMILY MEMORIES -

PEO­PLE in the North-east are to get an­other chance to get a new boiler and save more than £190 a year on fuel bills.

The third round of the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment’s scrap­page scheme has started and house­holds with poor per­form­ing, old boil­ers can ap­ply for money to help them buy a new model.

It is be­lieved about 6,000 homes across Scot­land could ben­e­fit from the cash, but the £2.5m fund­ing is on a first-come first-serve ba­sis.

The last scheme, run last year ran out of cash within 36 hours of be­ing launched.
