NATIONAL Grid is appealing to Halton residents to love their neighbour this winter and keep an eye on the vulnerable.
The network, which distributes gas and electricity throughout Britain, understand the importance of keeping homes warm throughout this cold weather.
It urged residents to “be good neighbours this winter” and although in the chaos of the snow it is easy to forget others, they are asking that you spare a thought for people who may be in need.
Throughout the year, and most importantly in winter, National Grid operate a gas emergency service to help those who lose their access to hot water or heating, which may put their health at risk.
Ian Palfreyman, National Grid’s head of the North West network said: “Warm homes and hot food are essentials during winter.
“Often, at this time of year, we can forget about the importance of checking on elderly and vulnerable people in our street – we can all play a part in looking out for those people in need of a little extra support during the colder months.”
Mr Palfreyman added: “Please make sure elderly or vulnerable neighbours have something hot to eat, and make sure their home is warm enough in the cold weather. “Rest assured that we’ll be continuing our work will make sure they have the gas to keep them safe and warm.”
Anyone who experiences power cuts or whose neighbours lose supply should call 0800 111 999.
