Could you be a volunteer snow warden?Published Thursday, 1st November 2018
Winter is on its way and Rotherham Council is appealing for volunteers to help keep their neighbourhoods clear in snowy weather.
As part of the Council’s “Love Where You Live” campaign, residents are encouraged to make a difference in their communities, by helping clear footways and pedestrian areas near to where they live, freeing up council staff to concentrate on key areas such as hospitals and care homes.
Volunteer snow wardens will receive detailed guidance from the Council, protective clothing including a high visibility vest and gloves, a snow shovel and supplies of bagged rock salt.
Rotherham Council’s Cabinet Member for Waste, Roads and Community Safety, Cllr Emma Hoddinott, said: “We’d love to hear from anyone who wants to join our growing number of Love Where You Live volunteers and become a snow warden. You can apply online now and the council provide all the equipment and information you need."
To find out more about becoming a volunteer snow warden and to keep up to date with any services affected in the event of bad weather, go to the Winter web pages.
Over the winter season regular Tweets will be sent out from the Council’s Twitter feed, @RMBCPress, keeping members of the public informed of weather conditions and the works being carried out. Look for the hashtag #SYGrit.
