Winter in forest

With the weather predicted to get colder soon, there is a timely warning from the Tarporley War Memorial Hospital about how a cold home can have a significant impact on people's health and advising that one of the best ways of keeping well during winter is to stay warm.

Key tips from the government's advice on getting ready for winter are:

  • Keep your home warm. The main living room should be around 18 — 21C ( 65 — 70F) and the rest of the house at a minimum of 16C ( 61F).
  • Wrap up warm, inside and out. Layer your clothing to stay warm and wear shoe with a good grip if you need to go outside.
  • Eat well. Food is a vital source of energy, which helps to keep the body warm. Try to make sure that you have hot meals and drinks regularly throughout the day and keep active in the home if possible.
  • Check on older neighbours or relatives to make sure they are safe and well. Make sure they're warm enough especially at night, and have stocks of food and medicines so they don't need to go out in cold weather.

On the 13th December 2013 at 7pm there is a Community Carol Concert in the presence of the High Sheriff at St Helen's Church, Tarporley in the aid of the Tarporley War Memorial Hospital. Tickets are £5, including refreshments, and can be obtained from the Hospital.
