“I was pleased to visit Everwarm, where I was able to meet the Managing Director Robert Stirling, and thank him and the team for the hard work they are doing to make homes in my Constituency warmer, and more energy efficient. I also had the opportunity to meet a local constituent in Winchburgh who had just had a new boiler installed by Everwarm engineers.

“Everwarm are working to support businesses and homes across West Lothian to ensure vital buildings are as energy efficient as they can be.

“The work Everwarm carry out as part of the Warmer Homes Scotland Scheme is incredibly important as many of my constituents continue to deal with the challenges arising from the Cost of Living and Energy Crises. It is vital that this scheme is promoted more and the work accelerated in the face of the energy price crisis.

“I am pleased to see a business based my Constituency carrying out this essential work in partnership with the Scottish Government and look forward to continuing to support Everwarm and seeing the success of their work as well as the many homes and companies they assist across my Constituency and indeed increasingly across the UK.”
