Snow wardens intro
Information on our snow warden scheme in Northumberland.
We are introducing a Snow Warden Scheme in Northumberland to allow an individual or a group of community volunteers to sign up to help clear snow and ice from public footpaths in their local areas.
By carrying out voluntary snow warden duties you will be helping to keep your community safer during severe winter conditions. In return we will provide you with a snow warden kit which comprises of a snow shovel, bag of salt/grit, a thermal hat with a head torch, a pair of thermal gloves and a hi-vis vest.
