Monday Feb 26th - Snow Angels on standby!

Horsell Snow Angels is on standby to activate over the next week or two, as weather worsens.

This is a picture of the Basingstoke canal this morning. Snow has been arriving in flurries.

We encourage anyone who feels that they need help to call the Snow Angels number 01483 380025. There is an answerphone message on this line at the moment, and anyone in need of help can leave a message which will be instantly accessed.

If we receive more than one or two requests for help, we will open the line properly, which means it will be answered immediately, and we'll send text messages out to volunteers in order to establish their availability for helping.

Residents are reminded that if they have mobility problems (even if they consider these 'borderline' or if they don't normally have problems), they should call Snow Angels rather than taking any risks in the snow or ice. The aim is to prevent unnecessary accidents. Accidents in the snow and ice can be catastrophic for the elderly, ill or pregnant women. So don't take the risk! Call us instead, and we'll make sure you don't need to go out.
