Winter Gritting

A day of freezing rain and potentially lethal conditions on our pavements.  I do hope all our volunteer gritters have been out gritting the roads and pavements - we need it!

My wife and I were out walking our Labrador today - I took this photograph of icicles on a gate down at the Frodsham Cut by the River Weaver - but I found walking on ungritted pavements particularly difficult en route!

As we walked I noticed that some of our side roads (the ones Cheshire West and Chester Council don't grit, and have no obligation to grit) - needed it.  I hope our volunteers are out doing their bit!

A really big thank-you to all our local volunteer gritters and to the Cheshire West and Chester Council gritters helping to keep us safe and moving.
