Snow warden appeal
VOLUNTEERS are needed to keep grit bins full and monitor salt supplies in villages across North Somerset this winter.
The council is looking for volunteer snow wardens to make villages safer when snow and ice is forecast for the district.
North Somerset Council has sent an email to parish and town councils across the district to raise awareness of the Community Resilience Scheme and ask for people to come forward.
A council spokesman said: “We have a comprehensive winter salting route, but smaller communities don’t always receive as much help as they would like.
“Volunteer snow wardens can help by monitoring local weather conditions, grit bins, salt supplies and by contacting the council if there is vandalism or misuse of resources.

“They will work to spread grit and snow at agreed locations as necessary.”
A training session for volunteers is being held at Castlewood in Clevedon from 10.30am to noon on Friday.
