Take care in the cold!

The mini beast from the east has hit and temperatures are at freezing again. Please DO remember –


  1. If you are elderly, try and keep warm by ensuring you keep an eye on your thermometer and keep your living room temperature at 21 degrees c and your bedroom at 18 degrees c
  2. If you are elderly, use a hot water bottle to keep warm, even during the day
  3. If you are elderly, have a hot drink regularly throughout the day
  4. If you have elderly neighbours, pop in to see if they are ok and offer to get any shopping they might need
  5. If you have elderly neighbours, could you offer to take round a hot meal for them?


Cold weather is a prime cause of preventable deaths among the elderly. Let’s all be a good neighbour and do what we can to help during this cold snap.
