Public spirited residents who will keep roads where they live free of snow and ice are being sought by Banbury Town Council.

Public spirited residents who will keep roads where they live free of snow and ice are being sought by Banbury Town Council.

With winter approaching the council is looking to extend a snow warden scheme that has been running since 2013.

The scheme sees neighbourly men and women organise the gritting of roads and pavements outside their own and their neighbours’ homes on snowy or frosty mornings.

Businesses in the town can get involved by gritting pavements outside their shops and offices.

Around 100 wardens are in place and more are required with the winter to come. Enlisting now will allow time for training and the organisation of equipment.

Cllr Kieron Mallon, leader of the council, said:

“Snow wardens are valued members of society. They keep roads, pavements and footpaths safer for everyone throughout the winter – particularly elderly and vulnerable residents who cannot help themselves.

“Wardens help keep the town moving at times when snow or frost could restrict travel to and from work, schools and shops.

“Businesses can do their bit by gritting outside their places of work.”

“Councils do their best to keep roads and pavements safe but most people realise gritting lorries cannot get everywhere instantly – but on-the-spot volunteers can act straightaway.”

“The scheme is a great way of getting communities working together during bad weather.”

The council supplies everything the volunteers need – and also provides training for the role.
