I know certain weather conditions have to be met and apparently we met them in Bristol. Mine came as a separate payment and I'm not saying how much it was Rambo! It's more than welcome though.

Just googled 'cold weather payments', don't think up here in the hills of n.wales met the requirements. Dollit, you ought to buy us all a hot toddy!!:tea: QF.

It was so cold here the harbour froze and the ferries couldn't operate! That's never happened before. I've never had one before because Bristol doesn't get that cold normally.

I wouldn't have thought so either, but the weather has gone haywire.My plants are heaving a sigh of relief and the birds haven't been for food today, interestingly enough...I gave them a veritable feast too!!

It has to be below freezing for 7 days in your town/city and you have to be on certain benefits it years since I have recieved one however they used to be £10 but have increased to £25 I understand from the interview on gmtv last week but in the sunday papers the goverment advertised that we are all going to get a one offf payment of £60 because times are so difficult in febuary if you are on certain benfits.
ies were cold enough I think you have done well Dollit I'm not sure how many towns/city, QF is right though the warm drinks are on you mines a cappachino:LOL:
