Stories from the Snow
Irene Stoker, from Byron Avenue, South Shields said: "I'm so grateful to our local housing plus officer who kindly cleared snow away from the ramp outside my bungalow. He did this in the harshest of conditions when the blizzard was at its worst and when I told him to leave it for another time, he was adamant to get it cleared. "Small gestures like these certainly make it easier for us to get in and out of the house especially when mobility is already an issue." - https://www.southtyneside.gov.uk/…/Council-Staff-and-Partne…
