The Past two weeks have been very busy for the volunteers on our first Snow Warden work since we were set up 4 years ago. We have now Stood down and the weather is somewhat more spring like. That being the case we have put together a short video highlighting our activities.
A small but dedicated band of volunteers came along for vehicle training and benefited from several circuits of the Railway Station car park practicing live carriageway stop procedures as well as the usual power point presentation last night. Learning which buttons did what on the lightbar was the most challenging aspect of a packed day. We certainly confused many of the local youth at their favourite gathering spot with our flashing lights and take flood signs in and out of the vehicle constantly!
Monday 3rd April was our official launch event for our vehicle and we had over 30 attendees representing over 10 partner organisations who were supporting us. It was great to welcome our VIPs including our Town Mayor and Michelle Donelan MP to the event who cut our ribbon.
