Snow wardens in Clevedon sprung into action last week to help ease the impact of the freezing weather.

The volunteers braved the bitterly cold temperatures to clear frozen footpaths outside the hospital and health centres across the town.

They also gritted footpaths on many steep parts of the town including Park Road and Chapel Hill where they also helped free a gritter lorry which had got stuck.

The inclement weather brought out the best in many people in the community with people pushing out drivers stuck in snow and helping out by checking on vulnerable neighbours.

As well as helping to clear snow, the community resilience volunteers also can help deal with 
other extreme weather conditions, including floods.
