Severe weather warnings for Cornwall - FX Plus preparation

27 February 2018

As you are probably aware severe weather (heavy snow, strong winds and ice) is forecast from tomorrow morning (Wednesday 28 February).

Please be assured that our teams are busy planning to ensure that we have enough employees on our campuses to maintain essential services.

We will also be gritting and clearing snow with priority given to all main roads and walking routes. All other areas (including car parks) will be cleared where we have the resources therefore we advise caution to all campus users.

We do advise anyone who does travel to the campuses over the next few days to allow more time and to ensure that they have appropriate clothing and footwear. If driving, have equipment in your cars such as windscreen de-icer.

When on campuses please take extra care when walking around and, where possible, use internal routes.

We will be continually monitoring the situation and updates will be issued via emails and on the FX Plus Twitter account - @falmouthexeter

NB parents/users of the Little Wonders Nurseries have already been informed that, in the event of severe weather, it may be necessary to close the nurseries due to staff being unable to get into work. If it is necessary to close parents/carers will be contacted as soon as possible.
