on saturday the start of the wintery weather i used the grit from one of the 2 grit bins on the estate .i scattered the grit onto the the steep roads on and around the estate .
leaving more than half of the grit left in the grit bin,
a few people who passed said that they were going to get a bag full for their part of the road pavement , but this wouldnt have taken all the grit away .
today with a new snow fall i again went out with bucket and shovel to scatter afew more shovel loads of grit on the parts that need it., so its easy to get off/on the estate - once on the main roads theres no problems ,
but the grit bin had about 4 shovel loads left in it. havent seen anyone taking it and they definatly havent used it on the estate roads . because i did it.
ive phoned the grit bin department of the council to see if the bin can be filled up again,
it can ,but they are not able to give a date , as all the gritting people are out and about now , so its when ever they get around to it.
im hoping it will be done in the next 2 days , but ill keep checking.
does any one want to have a guess?
council number to report empty grit bins is 01782 237061
