2 nights ago ... we had a very cold night . no gritting done by the council around the town !
Last night at about 6 pm . in the pouring rain I met a tractor gritting Staball Hill (twice) .. and the forecast was rain throughout the night.
Thats 2 evenings of wasted gritting ..
can whoever makes the decision to do the gritting check the forecast first .. as when a 'big freeze' comes .. all we'll hear from the council is that they didn't have enough materials in the stores ... not to mention the waste of money on overtime, diseal, etc.
