There is a 90% probability of severe cold weather between 0900 on Saturday 06 Feb and 2100 on Wednesday 10 Feb for the south-east of England.
This weather could increase the health risks to vulnerable patients and disrupt the delivery of services.
The Parish Council Emergency Group have contingency plans in place to support residents who may need help due to the cold weather. Please Contact Us or call the PCEG – 07787 651701
Look out for friends and family who may be vulnerable to the cold, and ensure they have access to warm food and drinks and are managing to heat their homes adequately. Try to maintain indoor temperatures to at least 18°C, particularly if you are not mobile, have a long-term illness or are 65 or over. Avoid exposing yourself to cold or icy outdoor conditions if you are at a higher risk of cold-related illness or falls and stay up to date with the latest weather forecasts on the Met Office website
