Get Ready for Winter

Although the weather in Gloucestershire has generally been fairly mild so far, severe weather can happen quickly and cause disruption to our families, homes and communities.

Gloucestershire County Council Civil Protection Team and all of the District Councils are encouraging individuals and communities to prepare for winter. The good news is that there are many practical steps that can be taken.

The Met Office ‘Get Ready for Winter’ website, provides a lot of useful advice about protecting your home, keeping warm and healthy and supporting your community this winter. A winter readiness checklist for Parish and Town Councils is also available.

If your Parish or Town Council is interested in developing a Community Emergency Plan, please contact your local District Council.
