More snow predicted, check on your neighbours

There's more snow forecast for this afternoon and freezing overnight so the side roads are going to be pretty awful in the morning.  If you haven't already cleared your footpath/drive/car then this afternoon is probably the best time to do it.

If you have elderly and/or vulnerable neighbours please make sure they're ok.  If you don't know them then it's a good excuse to introduce yourself.  If you're going shopping it would be good if you could ask any elderly or vulnerable neighbours if there is anything they need while you're there.

The main roads around Telford are pretty clear at the moment - the gritters have done a brilliant job of keeping the roads clear.  Two gritters have overturned in Shropshire this weekend (none in Telford) so it's worth remembering that these gritter drivers are putting themselves a risk to make sure the rest of us have safe roads to drive on.
