A Scottish Government campaign urging people across Scotland to get ready for winter is heading to Fraserburgh this week as part of a national tour encouraging people to ‘take an hour’ to get prepared for the possibility of severe weather.

The roadshow will visit Tesco today, Thursday, October 31, when the Ready for Winter advice team will advise people on how to prepare for severe weather conditions whether they’re at home, on the move, in the workplace or in the community.

The Scottish Government’s ‘Ready for Winter’ campaign is being delivered in partnership with the British Red Cross and a range of public, private and voluntary sector partners. The campaign aims to provide free information and advice on how to prepare and cope with severe weather including snow, ice, heavy rain and high-winds.

The roadshow takes the form of a pop-up area that will visit supermarkets and local high street areas across the country, engaging with the public to help everyone be better prepared this winter. The team will encourage the public to think about how they could be affected by severe weather this winter, to put in place simple plans and take some easy action that all together will help Scotland be more prepared and will highlight the range of free information, support and resources available across all regions of Scotland.
