The Met Office has issued a Cold Weather Alert for all regions of England.

Please inform older people that there is a strong chance of temperatures falling below 2°C from Friday to Monday, and make sure they have everything they need to keep warm and well. The temperature is set to be lower than the last few days and some snow possible in central areas, please all remain warm and click on the link for detailed forecast. Exposure to the cold can have a devastating impact on older people. As people get older it takes longer to warm up which can be bad for health. Breathing in cold air lowers the body temperature, and raises the risk of chest infections, heart attacks and strokes. The ideal temperature for a bedroom is 18°C (64°F) and 21°C (70°F) for a living room. Please monitor your room temperature to stay safe.
