Grateful Camelon residents took to a local social media group to say thank you to an unidentified local helper when they were delighted to find that their paths had been cleared after the latest round of heavy snowfall in February 2021.
Camelon man Tam Neil identified himself as the mystery snow-shoveller in the local community Facebook group, but only to make the offer to help others who he hadn’t managed to get to yet!
He told us, “I saw a couple of people struggling in the street and thought the right thing to do was help clear the snow so that elderly or vulnerable people could get out safely, or if anyone needed access in an emergency.”
Tam’s kind actions were appreciated and applauded by his neighbours, but he only wishes he could have managed to do more and plans to keep helping more of his neighbours as the poor weather continues.
Well done Tam – and remember, if you want to help with keeping the paths and walkways in your community safe, Falkirk Council has around 1200 grit bins located throughout the Falkirk area for local people to use. If your local grit bin needs replenished you can contact Falkirk Council by phone: 01324 506070, or email them directly: firstname.lastname@example.org
We’d also like to say a special thanks to everyone who supported their neighbours through the bad weather recently – anyone looking for ideas on how to help can check out the Being A Good Neighbour page!
