Preparing for winter

  • 22 Oct 2014

The remnants of hurricane Gonzalo have brought high winds, heavy rain and even some snow to parts of the UK in the last day or two. It's a good reminder that we're approaching winter and all that means for our weather. Thinking back over recent winters we've seen very different types of weather.

Two winters ago cold and snow seemed to make the headlines, especially as the cold weather arrived quite late and hung around into spring. Last winter was quite different with wind, rain and flooding bringing disruption to transport networks, power supplies and many local communities.

Get Ready for Winter is part of the Met Office website that's produced in partnership with Government, the voluntary sector and others to bring advice and information to help you prepare for winter weather and deal with the spells of severe weather that happen most winters.
Broadclyst Parish Council has listed site content here along with useful links in order to help our community prepare for the forthcoming winter season.
Please look out for elderly and vulnerable neighbours and take care in extreme weather conditions.
