Well, the New Year has arrived and I can’t quite believe how quickly the last one passed. The local weather is what you might call “all over the place” – with relatively mild interludes punctuating some heavy snow and sharp frosts. Windy as well. And very very wet. So there are lots of soft verges, potholes masquerading as puddles, fallen branches and dark mornings and nights to be aware of. Please “see and be seen” when out and about and keep an eye out for potentially vulnerable members of the community.
