I would personally like to thank our wonderful council employees, the maintenance men and women for gritting our roads and keeping them open, to the Chief Executive, the directors and officers for organising the work.

The carers, Meals on Wheels, district nurses, nurses and doctors, our Ambulance Service, the Fire Service, the Police, the Electricity Board, the Water Board, the Gas Board, the 4 x 4 Volunteers who gave up their valuable time to pick up and chauffeur people to and from work, to the people who visited and checked on the elderly and vulnerable.

To everyone who worked tirelessly 24/7.

The community and team spirit was exceptional you are all very much appreciated for your great work to keep us all safe in this period of extreme and bitter cold weather conditions.

Very well done to you all.

I am proud of you.
