Volunteers required to help grit village roads
4:00pm Tuesday 29th October 2013 in Harwich and Manningtree News
TWO villages have prepared for a harsh winter by stocking up on supplies of salt.
Now Ramsey and Parkeston Parish Council wish to distribute the grit between the neighbouring places and would like to hear from villagers willing to look after it and spread it when required.
Council vice-chairman Martyn Donn said: “We want to find sites to place salt bins and also more volunteers to distribute it.
“We have a few people already willing to help but if more residents in Pakeston and Ramsey could take a few bags that would be great.”
Anyone who can help should call Lin Keating on 01255 502616 or David Smith on 01255 507087.
