More snow wardens needed for county

High Peak residents are being urged to volunteer for Derbyshire County Council’s successful town and parish council snow warden scheme.

The authority has been recruiting volunteers to help their community clear snow and ice from pavements during wintery weather since 2011.

To date 95 town and parish councils have signed up to the scheme alongside six district and borough councils in Derbyshire.

But more snow wardens are needed to help co-ordinate snow clearing activities locally and report back road conditions in their area to the county council.

Anyone who would like to become a snow warden should get in touch with their town or parish council, unless they live in an unparished area in which case they need to contact their district or borough council.
