HELP vulnerable people during the cold winter months - this was the message from Bruce Crawford, MSP for Stirling this week.
Mr Crawford said: “As we head into winter, and with conditions forecast to remain very cold for some time to come, it seems likely that Stirling council and our emergency services will be at full stretch trying to keep major routes open and attend to the most pressing emergencies.
“If you are able to, it would be an ideal time to check on elderly or vulnerable neighbours, make sure they have heat and that their pre-payment meters are topped up.
“If you are in an area where the footpaths are still affected by snow and ice, you may be able to help clear paths. It is essential that we keep a look out for our neighbours and lend a hand when required during the cold snap.”
