RESIDENTS are urged to seek advice to prepare for winter weather conditions.

As part of the national Get Ready for Winter Campaign, Tendring Council will hold an information day at Clacton’s Princes Theatre on October 23 from 10am until 3pm.

Entry is free.

Groups attending will include Essex Civil Protection and Emergency Management, Essex County Fire and Rescue Service, Essex Police and the British Red Cross.

The groups will give out advice on issues ranging from clearing snow to checking tyres.

Lynda McWilliams, Tendring Council’s cabinet member for customer and central services, said: “Being prepared for all eventualities will make a huge difference in how we are to cope with whatever winter throws our way."
