Snow wardens wanted

Have your say

Volunteers are wanted to help clear snow and ice from the pavements over the winter months.

Derbyshire County Council wants more snow wardens to help coordinate snow clearing activities in local communities and to provide updates on road conditions.

The council’s deputy cabinet member for jobs, economy and transport, Councillor Dean Collins, said: “Severe winter weather can really damage the local economy.

“People struggling to get to work, businesses being unable to make deliveries and supplies not getting through - it all adds up and can prove very costly for local firms.

“That’s why we’ll be doing all we can to keep our roads clear this winter.

“And snow wardens can play an important role by being our eyes and ears in their communities and alerting us to any problems on the roads as well as helping to clear snow from pavements.”

Anyone in Derbyshire interested in the role should contact their local town or parish council.
