PPE and Equipment for Road Warden works in Buckfastleigh
Buckfastleigh Town Council successfully applied for a grant of £700.00, through the HMCEF to enable the purchase of personal protective equipment (PPE) and a shed for the storage of tools and personal protective equipment.
These purchases have enabled volunteers to undertake highway maintenance projects within the community, which have improved the visual appeal of the area. These local projects include works that Devon County Council are not able to undertake as they do not meet policy or funding is not available.
One example is shown in the pictures provided as weed clearance is a service that Devon County Council are no longer able to provide.
