Sinn Féin Councillor Kevin Campbell has called on local communities to be extra vigilant in the care of elderly and vulnerable neighbours who may be affected by poor weather conditions over the next couple of days.10915352_10200278352677797_7714536170891800871_n(1)

 

Speaking today after a warning was issued for snow and ice across the North for next 48-72  hours, Councillor Kevin Campbell said

 

“It’s imperative that we take care of vulnerable neighbours in the face of these weather warnings. Tasks as simple as going to the shop can prove inconvenient for some and it is up to the local communities to take steps to aid those in need.

 

“I would call on all to go the extra mile to provide the necessary support required. We ask that residents take a minute to check in on elderly and vulnerable neighbours and friends to ensure that their safety is in check during the adverse conditions.”
