Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council is urging residents to get wise this winter by preparing for the cold weather that lies ahead.
The Council has produced a 20-page publication called ‘Winterwise,’ which contains lots of tips and advice for residents on how to keep warm and well throughout the winter months. It also includes information on how to winter-proof your house including steps to decrease the risk of flooding or pipes freezing. There are also some tips on what you can do to be prepared for an emergency, as well as a full list of emergency contacts.
The Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey, Councillor Paul Hamill commented: “Our weather is so unpredictable this time of year so it is important to be prepared for the worst. The booklet has some great advice on how you can beat the freeze this winter and ensure the weather has minimal impact.”
The booklet is available online at www.antrimandnewtownabbey.gov.uk/winterwise. or if you require a hard copy T. 028 9446 3113.
