As winter approaches it’s important to make sure you, your relatives, neighbours and others are ready for all the challenges it brings.

Allerdale Borough Council has supported Cumbria County Council’s Winter Ready campaign again this year which provides a great deal of information on how to prepare for the winter months.

The campaign seeks to ensure people have the right information, advice and guidance at their fingertips and it has been developed by the county council, the six district councils, NHS, Cumbria Community Foundation and the Environment Agency.

The campaign provides advice and assistance on everything people need to know to help be prepared for winter such as emergency planning, advice on how to protect your home from flooding, winter travel and health advice.

For more information and resources, visit the dedicated website which is a one-stop source to help businesses and residents throughout Allerdale and beyond prepare.
