Littlehempston Parish Council – Winter Maintenance
Littlehempston Parish Council were awarded £1000 for snow and ice clearance during the winter period.
The parish purchased a snow hopper attachment for a tractor to enable the parish to be gritted prior to and during snow fall. The parish is quite widespread and made up of small lanes which can easily be cut off in times of snow. This would enable continuation of employment and help provide a safer egress and access to the village for those who have to make essential journeys. A local farmer has very kindly offered to provide his services to distribute the grit in times of need.
A nominated Snow Warden for the Parish has also received snow warden training and information from the Highway Officer.
