Unfortunately, the parish council has received a large number of complaints from residents who have witnessed the removal of grit from the bins for personal use on driveways. All residents are therefore reminded that the grit provided in the bins is for use on the public highway and pavements only.
The parish council is reliant on their supplies via Derbyshire County Council and this is only allowed if they have sufficient stock. Therefore, as we have a cold snap forecast, no grit is being released and the council is aware that some bins are getting low and some may well be empty.
Those residents who need grit for their own properties are reminded that it can be purchased for a reasonable fee from all DIY merchants, petrol forecourts and most supermarkets. In the meantime your parish council will get the bins refilled as soon as supplies are obtained
