There is no snow to worry about in or on the approach roads to Wing. A brief run round my normal routes showed the only possible hazard to be odd patches of frozen water. and of course the fact that it is cold with a nasty chill factor in this wind.
Hall car park and drive are clear, three small patches of ice have been gritted, heating is on and all very welcoming down there for our VIP visitors today.

There was again snow last night and fairly high winds. This morning road conditions are good. I have driven Wing Preston Manton and back to Wing. There were Occasional patches of slush but the roads are gritted and salted so are just wet. No drifts seen.
Saturday 17 March 09:00
There was a light snow fall last night but it’s effect will be minor. I have not gone out but looking through my window there is none lying on the roads round Mill Close.
I imagine roads in and out of Wing will not be affected. I will report as soon as I can get out. I shall be snow clearing and gritting down at the hall but will first run up to the Preston turn to check road conditions. Any problems I will report here.
10:30 Drove to Preston and the roads are in fact dry on the road past the barn conversion.
Temperature is around zero but climbing slowly so I don’t expect much by way of problems today.

|Fraudsters are cold-calling victims, falsely stating that they are calling from one of the well-known UK telecommunication service providers. They call victims claiming to provide a ‘Telephone Preference Service’ – an enhanced call-barring service, which includes barring international call centres.
The fraudsters ask victims to confirm/provide their bank account details, informing them that there is a one-off charge for the service. Victims instead see monthly debits deducted from their accounts, which they have not authorised. The fraudsters often target elderly victims.
In all instances, direct debits are set up without following proper procedure. The victim is not sent written confirmation of the direct debit instruction, which is supposed to be sent within three days.
On occasions when victims attempted to call back, the telephone number provided by the fraudster was either unable to be reached or the victim’s direct debit cancellation request was refused.
During 2017, there were 493 Action Fraud Reports relating to this fraud.
There is only one Telephone Preference Service (TPS). The TPS is the only official UK ‘do-not-call’ register for opting out of live telesales calls. It is FREE to sign-up to the register. TPS never charge for registration. You can register for this service at http://www.tpsonline.org.uk
The information contained within this alert is based on the results of research carried out by the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau (NFIB) concerning incidents of fraud. One of the key objectives of sharing fraud data between the NFIB and partners is to prevent fraud

Has signs advising that it will be closed on SUNDAY 4/3 so if you need to get to Oakham have a rethink of your route. Empingham is favourite.
