There is a strong possibility that access to town will be threatened in the days ahead with heavy snow falls forecast for Thursday and Friday.
Do you have enough food supplies to tied you over this period? If you are having to use your car, it is advisable to take an emergency getaway bag with you, at the very least some extra warm clothing, a blanket. Ensure you have a first aid kit in the car at all times. It might pay to top the car with fuel too.
Do you have an emergency plan in place?
Please note: The Diamond Harbour Community Church is the designated Civil Defence Sector Post/Welfare Centre - but hopefully we won't have to open up.
If you have any queries, please contact Wendy on 329 4483, or during an emergency response on 021 0827 6928.
Take care, stay warm, stay safe.
