ready for the holidays

It’s that time of year again when our Christmas cheer has well and truly worn out and we start dreaming of sandy beaches and all-inclusive buffets. For parents, holidays mean planning ahead – Do we still have last year’s lilo in the garage? Have we bought enough factor 50 for the kids? Who’s hidden the passports?

So, how can we help January be a bit less... January?

what not to do if someone falls through ice

Each year, the Fire and Rescue Service warn people of the extreme dangers of being around ice and open water during this time of year. For children especially, it might be tempting to walk or play on the frozen water but ice over any inland water can be inconsistent and very thin in parts.
