Volunteers Required for Snow Patrol - Winter 2019/20

With winter just around the corner the parish council is planning to make sure we are ready for when colder conditions arrive.

As part of that planning we are once again seeking public-spirited residents to help keep Winster moving this winter should snow and icy conditions strike.

Full training is provided along with protective clothing, equipment and a map of the routes to be treated.
