Welwyn Hatfield Council services disrupted

REFUSE and recycling rounds have been cancelled across Welwyn Hatfield this morning due to the snow.

The area’s elderly and vulnerable who receive a meals on wheels service were supplied with tins of soup earlier in the week to prepare for today’s adverse weather.

However 13 residents have said they cannot manage without a hot meal, and Welwyn Hatfield Council chief executive Michel Saminaden is delivering the food himself.

Mr Saminaden will be using his own 4x4 to get out to the most needy, a move welcomed after the council was criticised for cancelling the vital service in February.

Meals on wheels staff are calling all affected clients.

Council buildings remain open as usual today.

*Send us your pictures of the snow - are you stuck in traffic or building a snowman?
