Its very icy this week and the pavements and footpaths are horribly slippery – particularly in the shadows. Over the last 3 winters I’ve funded about 25 grit-bins around Woodbridge from my locality budget. They have been placed in areas where volunteers have offered to help keep pavements safe. This means there ought to be one near YOU.
(And if there isn’t you know why!)
Please think of your elderly neighbours and those more vulnerable than yourself, who may be housebound because of fear of falling. Winter is not only the time for colds and flu, its also a peak time for broken bones. If – as happens in other countries – each of us made ourselves responsible for clearing the pavement outside our house, many problems would be solved just like that!
