As with last winter the Parish Council is committed to providing the gritting of footpaths within the village when the County Council carries out footway gritting in urban areas of the County. When an instruction from the County Highways is received the Parish Council and the village volunteers will swing into action and grit our footpaths.
To provide a more efficient service than last year some new wheel barrows and shovels have been purchased. Furthermore extra grit bins have also been provided by the County so that our "true gritters" can get the grit distributed to where it is really needed !
So when the weather takes a serious turn for the worse, look out for the gritters and their new orange wheel barrows ! Once again, the Parish Council must record its sincere thanks to all the village volunteers for taking on this difficult task.
Thanks in particular to David Maclaren, Tony Makin, Kev Parker, Mike Fish and David Lambert !
