Town Centre Gritting Done

Haslemere Simon Dear Gritting

Last autumn, Councillors voted to buy two new hand-operated gritting machines for the town, which today saw action for the first time.

In anticipation of the ice & snow to come, one of your councillors, Simon Dear and the Town Clerk today spent some time gritting the pavements and crossovers to try and help keep access to businesses open.

They loaded out quite a lot of grit in bags along the street but the spreaders were so effective that not all of it was needed – meaning it had to be picked up, but it’s all a learning process.

The spreaders worked really well and were so much easier than the barrow and shovels used last year, meaning repeating the work will be much easier to do if needs be.
