Snow Angels are residents who volunteer to clear snow and ice from the footways and pathways in their local area. This is an activity you can do on your own or as part of a resident group. We really appreciate help with our winter gritting and snow clearance - especially in those hard to reach places.

If you're interested in becoming a Snow Angel, please fill in the I would like to be a snow angel form.

We'll contact you and arrange to drop off your gritting tools.  All Snow Angels will receive if requested:

  • 20kg bag of grit
  • a branded hi-visibility vest
  • protective gloves
  • snow scoop or plastic shovel

Safe gritting

There's no law stopping you from clearing snow and ice on the pavement outside your home or from public spaces.

The government's website says it's unlikely you'll be sued or held legally responsible for any injuries on the path if you've cleared it carefully.

Follow the Snow Code, from the Met Office, to help you clear ice and snow safely.
