Last year Rutland County Council initiated a Snow Warden scheme which was set up to support the local gritting of footways across Rutland’s parishes. This scheme asked parishes to attempt to compile a number of volunteers who would be prepared to grit the local footpaths within their immediate area. In 2018/19 there were fourteen volunteers who signed up to the scheme. Through the Snow Warden Scheme, RCC will provide advice and equipment to any volunteers. We are keen for the parish councils to oversee this volunteer project in their area and encourage their local communities to get involved to provide support to their local community. Rutland County Council would like to invite the parish council and any local residents who are interested in getting involved in the snow warden scheme to a training meeting on 15th October 2019 at 6:30pm in the Council Chamber at our Catmose Office.
The Snow Warden must:
- be nominated as suitable by the town or parish council or similar body
- have received suitable training by RCC to carry out Snow Warden duties
- agree to work within the advice provided by the county council
- agree to work to the parish council’s plan that has been agreed with RCC
- be registered with RCC
The Snow Warden will be working on behalf of the parish council, not RCC
If there any residents interest please can they contact the Parish clerk: Telephone 01780 408288 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
