Call for DIY gritters

With winter on the horizon, Sudbury Town Council is calling on residents to join its team of volunteer gritters.

A group of hardy helpers have already signed up to the council’s volunteer grit register – and more are needed to help keep some of the town’s minor roads clear in the event of ice or snow.

In previous years, hundreds of people have come forward to do their bit and it is hoped a similar response will be forthcoming this winter.

Residents will be responsible for grit bins in their street and asked to inform the council if supplies start to run low, while keeping pavements safe.

To register or for more information, call the council on 01787 372331.
