Winter weather

Winter advice on heating homes, gritting service, schools, vulnerable and elderly residents support, bin collections, using parks safely and transport updates.

During the winter months, the weather can be unpredictable, with sudden cold spells and snowfall. It's important to pay attention to the weather forecast.

Older adults and those with long-term health conditions are particularly vulnerable to the health effects of the cold and are more likely to get injured through slips and falls.

Making preparations for winter can help you minimise any disruption during bad weather and help you prevent colds, flu and other health problems over the winter months.

The Met Office provides tips on getting ready for winter.
