Council leader salutes borough’s resilience during cold blast

Cllr Alex Ganotis thanks residents, businesses, voluntary organisations and Council employees for going the extra mile to look after others during the cold weather spell last week.

Cllr Ganotis said: “I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone in Stockport who has shown extreme resilience last week during challenging circumstances because of the cold weather.

“A special thank you to Solutions SK’s gritting team who have worked tirelessly to grit and plough the borough under freezing temperatures, ensuring people could get around Stockport. Their bin collection crews also did the best they could under very difficult conditions, so I’d like to thank them as well.

“The weather seems to be improving now, but I’d urge our communities to keep looking after themselves and one another to make sure everyone across the borough is safe and well.”
