Winter

Follow us on twitter: @Inverclyde for updates on services over the festive period.

Updates and information about Council services affected by severe weather will be published here.

  • Keep aware of the weather forecast by checking the Met Office website: www.metoffice.gov.uk
  • If you do have to travel, plan your journey, allow extra time and be prepared, for example by having an emergency kit should you be travelling by car
  • If the snow does lie, safely and carefully try to keep paths and driveways clear. It’s easier to clear snow before it gets packed down.
  • Wrap up warm with layers, and keep at least one room in your home warm. Hot food helps keep you warm from the inside.
  • There is an increased risk of power cuts during periods of high wind and heavy snow. So it’s important to take simple steps to prepare for a short period without electricity
  • Remember to check on neighbours you think might need an extra helping hand
  • Visit www.readyscotland.org for more information on preparing for winter weather.
