Bristol City Council (BCC) are looking for community spirited people to volunteer as snow wardens to help out in the event of snow this winter.
The major routes are prioritised for gritting, but the gritting lorries can’t get to all the minor roads, steep hills or tricky junctions that can prove difficult to pass in wintery conditions. This is where BCC need the help of the local community to help keep these areas clear.
What you would need to do:
- Clear some snow from the footways to help people to get about.
- Spread grit to prevent ice forming.
- Encourage a neighbourly attitude to vulnerable people in the area.
The 2013 / 14 proposed dates for Community Snow wardens meetings are
29th Oct 2013
21st Nov 2013
18th Dec 2013
16th Jan 2014
All at the City Hall, College Green
All sessions commencing 1830 hrs. finishing at 2000 hrs. latest
Volunteers should be aware that they will have a large shovel plus some other bits of kit to take home, so need to think about mode of transport carefully
How to volunteer
Please contact Simon Creed, Civil Protection Manager on 0117 922 3233 or Simon.firstname.lastname@example.org
