Residents help neighbours in freeze

WOKING residents worked together with charities, churches and the council during the late winter freeze to help their neighbours and the most vulnerable people in the borough.

The York Road Project took part in the national initiative Severe Weather Emergency Provision (SWEP) which meant that its services were available for rough sleepers, whether or not they had connection to Woking.

“It sounds really lovely but it’s to stop people dying of the cold. It’s actually a logistical nightmare,” said Cath Stamper, chief executive of the York Road Project.
