VALIANT volunteers battled through heavy snow and icy conditions to deliver meals to elderly people across North Somerset.

The Meals and Wheels Service's 12 workers ensured all 350 clients in the district had a meal every working day this week.

To beat the conditions the North Somerset Council-managed group made full use of four 4X4 vehicles and delivered meals days in advance.

Manager Emma Channon said: "The weather seems to have disrupted services everywhere but we've still managed to get the meals out to our clients.

"To help, we delivered some meals frozen for the days ahead so we weren't tied to returning each day.

"But for those who did not have access to a microwave or oven we made sure they got a hot meal."

The national service was badly hit by the weather this week, with some branches even calling for help from 4X4 drivers to get meals out to clients.
