During this extremely cold weather spell elderly residents could be become housebound through fear of the icy conditions.
If you have elderly neighbours or family members please take ten minutes of your time to call in and check on them as they may need supplies or medication.
When visiting them note if the house is warm, if they are wearing suitable clothing.
A friendly chat and a cup of tea never goes amiss as many of the elderly are lonely and too proud to ask for help.
