Snow beckons . . .

With the much anticipated snow potentially only hours away (expected overnight Saturday into Sunday), I popped along to Homeleigh Nurseries, Garden Centre and Farm Shop earlier today to get myself some road salt and a new shovel.

Lots of other people clearly had the same idea, as the place was buzzing. The proprietor Ron Thorne (pictured below) was on hand and happy to help everyone find what they wanted.

Another blatant advert I know, but in the form of a useful ‘public service announcement’! If you’re thinking about popping along tomorrow, they’re open from 8am till 5pm on a Sunday - and have plenty of shovels and grit.

Homeleigh Nurseries, Garden Centre and Farm Shop, Ratcliffe Highway, Hoo, ME3 8QD. Telephone: 01634 250235.

Wherever you are and whatever you’re doing - wrap up, stay warm and keep a look out for elderly or vulnerable neighbours that might need some help and assistance.

Take care!
