Cambridgeshire County Council have launched their 2023-24 Community Gritting Scheme.   Below is their message to you:

This is a request for winter volunteers for this winter season 2023-2024.

We would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to all the volunteers that took part in our Community Gritting Scheme last winter.

For those hearing about the Community Gritting Scheme for the first time, this is a scheme where Local volunteers can help to keep their community moving in freezing weather.  Under this scheme, the parish or town council decides on specific routes in their area which are important to the local community and agrees them with the county council.

For further information please see our web page: https://www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/residents/travel-roads-and-parking/roads-and-pathways/gritting-roads-cycleways-and-paths/help-with-gritting-and-clearing-snow/

If anyone is interested in supporting this scheme, please contact Libby – clerk@greatshelfordparishcouncil.gov.uk.  If there are not enough volunteers, Great Shelford would not be in a position to take part.
