When the winter months arrive Lambeth's gritters work hard to keep our borough's main transport routes and pedestrian areas free from ice and snow.
With our focus on keeping public services and main transport routes running, many quieter residential roads don't get gritted. Because of this, we are offering all our residents and communities the equipment and grit they would need to make a difference in their local area by clearing snow and ice from residential streets.
If you are an individual or part of a community group who is keen to assist others on your road and in your local area and would like to be a part of our Snow Wardens Scheme, please contact us by email SnowWardens@lambeth.gov.uk or telephone 020 7926 0524.
What does the scheme involve?
If you, or a group of you, would like to be able to clear snow from your pavements, we will give you some basic training to keep you safe and supply you with:
-a grit bin and supply of salt (delivered to you)
If you are part of a community group, we will supply you with a number of shovels and equipment which can be shared by your members. Training sessions will be held during the weeks beginning 10 October and 24 October 2011, with some sessions during the early evening and some during the day. The sessions will be a good opportunity to meet and mix with other snow wardens in your area.
How do I sign up?
To sign up as a volunteer or to simply find out more about the scheme please email SnowWardens@lambeth.gov.uk or telephone 020 7926 0524.
