The winter weather brings out the best in British community spirit.
The local press is full of fantastic stories of local communities pulling together to help those in need. Helping shovel snow so people can get around easier.
We are calling on Sheffield’s Labour Council to reinstate their full support for Snow Wardens.
Back in 2010, a scheme was pioneered by the Lib Dems where volunteer Snow Wardens would be given snow shovels and a one tonne bag of grit to use in the community. Now they still have the snow shovels, but the Council no longer provides them with any grit.
Let’s embrace the community spirit and give them the tools they need.
We, the undersigned, call upon Sheffield City Council to throw their full support to the Snow Warden Scheme and to empower communities. By providing training, equipment and grit for volunteers.
