As Winter is drawing in, it is important to be prepared for the bad weather that Appleby knows so well.
One of our Councillors attended the Met Office Briefing for emergency responders. They advised that emergency response groups should sign up to the ‘National Severe Weather Warning Service’ and the ‘Daily Hazard Warning reports’, which are very informative and include information reports about both hot and cold weather forecasts. They also advise that people access the ‘Are You Weather Ready’ section of their website for information about preparing for winter. (Link noted below)
