With the majority of Summer Holidays now behind us ( including 2 x heatwaves ! ) , thoughts are turning to the next months of Autumn and Winter ahead . With an ongoing Cost of Living crisis and forecast high Energy costs for the next Months at least ,it looks to be a tough time for the UK Economy and the majority of UK Households . New policies from a new Prime Minister may bring some relief . but all the signs are of a tough Winter ahead . Best be prepared !
