Snow clearers needed at Kilmington
Appeal for recruits to help keep the village moving if the snow and ice returns this winter
VOLUNTEERS are needed to help keep Kilmington moving if there is another icy blast this winter.
Local resident David Vickers has been appointed the village’s snow warden and is busy recruiting a team of helpers.
He has reminded residents that the snow and extended freezing conditions last winter caused significant problems in the village. “Our roads and lanes were transformed into sheets of ice making it hard for many of us to get out and about for several days,” he said.
“We don’t know if the same weather will hit us again but one thing is certain, we can be better prepared for it.”

Mr Vickers said that under the new snow wardens and community self help scheme the county council was providing advice, training and, most usefully, five tons of road salt. In addition, it was also providing third party public liability insurance to cover those volunteering under the scheme.
He added: “The salt is coming shortly and all we need now are volunteers to help spread it at the right time.”
