This morning was a chilly one with temperatures hovering around freezing point. We didn’t expect that after a mild November for the most part and a tropical October. Now is the time to think about preparing for the winter.
Have you thought about getting kitted up with a big winter coat, gloves and hat to keep warm this winter? It’s also worth checking out your car to make sure the tyre pressure, battery and headlights are OK. I went to Halfords the other week to have a front light replaced and found the pricing and service very reasonable.
Most of the Christmas lights in Medway are on now with Chatham Chritmas lights starting the trend followed by Strood Christmas lights, Gillingham Christmas lights and I opened Hempstead Valley’s Christmas Grotto over the weekend. Still to come the fantastic Rochester Christmas lights and Dickens Christmas Market and Rainham Christmas lights this Friday.
Fire in Chatham
Fire fighters were alerted to a fire in a derelict church between Church Lane and the A2 Brook at around 5:40am. As a result the A231 Dock Road has been closed off all morning.
Traffic has been diverting along the A2 between Chatham and Gillingham and around Canterbury Street as a result. Over 30 fire fighters attended from the early hours to tackle the Medway blaze.
