LETTER: Thanks to everyone who helped in the Big Freeze

WE have all grumbled about the freezing, snowy weather. Icy pavements, uncleared roads making movement difficult, cancelled parties and holidays.

Normal lives have been disrupted – no Christmas shopping possible and essential shopping minimised.

Despite all this, I would like to give thanks to all those who kept essential services running. I would also like to congratulate the refuse collection service, newspaper deliveries and the postman all struggling through the snow. Especially our postman who alerted us to a water leak in our garage. Well done to all of them.

I wonder if they gave Father Christmas a hand?
