Derbyshire County Council Snow Warden Scheme 2022-23 Volunteers Needed!

Derbyshire County Council Snow Warden Scheme 2022-23

The Council's Snow Warden Scheme continued to be successful last year with several Parish's joining the scheme with volunteers helping to clear snow and ice and grit footways and pavements.

As we don't know yet what this winter will bring, we don't want to be caught off guard. The call has also gone out to citizens and Community groups interested in volunteering as Snow Wardens or footway clearing.

Therefore, we want to hear from you now if you're interested in helping to keep main pavements and other footpaths in your local area clear. We have prepared all the paperwork that you will require for signing up the wardens and for running the scheme.

In return for your help, we will provide you with: -

  • up to a tonne of grit, free-of-charge, and delivered directly to your designated storage area, in 10/25kg bags
  • a free online training course and advice for your snow wardens/volunteers on how to clear snow and ice safely
  • early notification of forecast bad weather
  • a dedicated resource page for snow wardens on the County Council website to enable you to report your snow clearing activities and report grit bins empty or request additional grit

Most insurance companies cover Council's for undertaking this type of activity but please check with your own insurance company to ensure that you are covered.

To register your interest and for more information email:

Snow@derbyshire.gov.uk

The deadline for registration is 31st October 2022

You can also find out more information by visiting www.derbyshire.gov.uk/snow or by clicking on snow Wardens

Thank you in anticipation of your support.

Kind regards

Snow Team
