This is a request from Cambridgeshire County Council (CCC) for winter volunteers for this winter season 2022-2023.

CCC would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to all the volunteers that took part in our Community Gritting Scheme last winter.

For those hearing about the Community Gritting Scheme for the first time, this is a scheme where Local volunteers can help to keep their community moving in freezing weather. Under this scheme, the parish or town council decides on specific routes in their area which are important to the local community and agrees them with the county council.

CCC will need a form for each of your volunteers, including those who have volunteered before.  The form is required annually ensure our health and safety standards are being met.

See below for a link to the Community Gritting registration form:
