Lustleigh – Grant for PPE to help with pothole repairs

Pothole filling trials

Following the receipt of a further grant from the Highways Maintenance Community Enhancement Fund, Lustleigh Parish Council have been able to purchase new PPE.

This new PPE will be worn by the volunteers undertaking duties as part of the Road Warden Scheme (RWS). The PPE includes; Hi-Viz traffic coat and Hi-Viz bomber jacket.

Under the RWS the Parish are repairing numerous potholes.

Having the PPE means that the volunteers undertaking the works are safer while out on the road.
