Winter Woe's - Brrrrrr

Have you noticed that as soon as we get all this snow the authorities say don't travel unless its absolutely necessary.   Well it's fortunate that some workers think their jobs are necessary, I for one appreciate the efforts of our local refuse workers in continuing to work normally.   As we didn't have a visit from them last week due to the christmas holidays I'm sure we all would like to say a big thank you to these workers.

Another person some of us are thankful for is the coalman from "East Riding Coal Supplies", his must be a most un-enviable job in the present weather conditions.   Yesterday he kept his commitments to his customers in Skeffling even though it was 6:30 at night when he managed to get through due to the adverse conditions in rural East Yorkshire.

So if you struggled to get to work to provide a service to others and ignored official advice not to travel THANK YOU, what would we do without this sentiment?   Plus don't they realise if these workers didn't turn up for work they wouldn't get paid and that's why its essential that they keep the roads gritted and open for ordinary people to continue to work normally.

Do you know of any other worker that provided you with an essential service and would like to recognise their efforts, then e-mail you story to be published here or why not join our community and post yourself "details can be found elsewhere on this page".

But if you are unfortunately having to stay at home why not indulge in a bit of retail therapy by visiting any of our sponsors for example Amazonplus they are still offering free delivery on all items however low the price.

You forgot our Postie! She's delivering our post in all weathers and does an ace job. It certainly can't be easy trawling round snowy streets, and she certainly deserves our very best Thank you...
