SNOW WARDENS ON ALERT AS BRIGG PREPARES FOR THE WORST THE WEATHER CAN THROW AT US THIS WINTER

December having arrived, people living in Brigg and district are wondering whether the great British weather will be heaping snow on us in considerable quantities in the weeks ahead.
Summer 2018 being exceptionally warm for long periods, does this mean we can expect a severe winter to take hold?
If this does prove to be the case, North Lincolnshire Council, Brigg Town Council and neighbouring parishes have plans in place to help keep things moving.
Snow Wardens play a key role in this, and Brigg's is Coun Rob Waltham, the Leader of North Lincolnshire Council.

Helping towns and parishes prepare for with wintry weather

FROM CHRIS O'ROURKE, NORTH LINCOLNSHIRE COUNCIL


In the run up to winter, North Lincolnshire Council is supporting town and parish councils to get ready for when bad weather hits.
The council runs a Snow Warden scheme, allowing appointed people to be the eyes and ears of their parish in bad weather and advise the council on the state of the roads and footpaths.
The council also has a dedicated budget, made available to town and parish councils in adverse weather conditions, to help them fund snow and ice clearance in their towns and villages.
Council Leader, Cllr Rob Waltham, met with the Snow Wardens prior to the start of the wintry weather.
He said: “The Snow Warden scheme is way we can use local knowledge to keep North Lincolnshire moving when bad weather hits. This volunteer role is vital to helping us keep main routes clear and I want to thank them for the work they do as our eyes and ears in their communities.
“Residents know their towns and villages best, so by making this special winter budget available in bad weather to our town and parish councils, they can make sure the resources are where they need to be to effectively deal with ice and snow.”
The council’s winter service starts at the end of October each year and our officers are on standby ready to work 24 hours a day, seven days a week, when needed, right through until the end of March.
The council is ready to respond to the harshest of conditions with a stock of around 6,000 tonnes of salt, ten gritters and a mini gritter for treatment of other areas such as car parks and pedestrianised areas (precautionary routes). Stocks are replenished during the season to ensure that sufficient salt is available at all times.
As always, road users are urged to also be prepared for all weather conditions and not to get caught out.
Around 51 per cent of our roads are salted in North Lincolnshire – over 700km worth – which is higher than the national average. See the full map of our winter gritting routes on our website at www.northlincs.gov.uk/winterservice

NF adds:
North Lincolnshire Council has already made it clear that Brigg town centre will be a priority area when it comes to clearing ice and snow and putting down salt to make life easier for pedestrians and traders. Hopefully, the teams of workers won't be called upon too often between now and next April. But you never know...

It's all the Council's fault....they gave us too much weather..they gave us too much sun in the summer and now they're going to make it snow....what do we pay our Council Tax For? Cancel weather and give us back a better pot-hole repair team.

Hello every one out here....
My name is CLARA BAMBI , I'm from North Carolina USA. i want to use this opportunity to thank my great spell caster who really made my life a pleasurable today. This great man PRIEST WISDOM brought my husband back to me, i had three lovely kids for my husband, about four years ago i and my husband has been into one quarrel or the other until he finally left me for one lady. i felt my life was over and my kids thought they would never see their father again. i tried to be strong just for the kids but i could not control the pains that torments my heart, my heart was filled with sorrows and pains because i was really in love with my husband. Every day and night i think of him and always wish he would come back to me, until one day i met a good friend of mine that was also in a situation like me but her problem was her ex-boyfriend who she had an unwanted pregnancy for and he refused to take responsibility and dumped her. she told me that mine was a small case and that i should not worry about it at all, so i asked her what was the solution to my problems and she gave me this great man email address. i was doubting if this man was the solution, so i contacted this great man and he told me what to do and i deed them all, he told me to wait for just two day and that my husband will come crawling on his kneels just for forgiveness so i faithfully deed what this great man asked me to do and for sure after two days i heard a knock on the door, in a great surprise i saw him on his kneels and i was speechless, when he saw me, all he did was crying and asking me for forgiveness, from that day, all the pains and sorrows in my heart flew away,since then i and my husband and our lovely kids are happy.that's why i want to say a big thank you to PRIEST WISDOM . This great man made me to understand that there is no problem on earth that has no solution so please if you know that you have this same problem or any problem that is similar, i will advise you to come straight to this great man. you can email him at: supernaturalspell1@gmail.com And also Reach him on WhatsApp Number: +2348124644470 Thanks PRIEST WISDOM
