Local volunteers can help to keep their community moving in freezing weather by taking part in the Community Gritting Scheme.
Under this scheme, the parish or town council agrees specific routes in their area which are important to the local community and agrees them with the county council.
Volunteers can then sign up to grit these routes using equipment provided by the county council. If you would like to know more or wish to volunteer, please read the Community Gritting Training Pack
You will need to complete the registration form at the end of the training pack and email it to us to sign up and become a volunteer. If you are a parish or town council looking to join the scheme, please email [email protected] or speak to your local highway officer.
Volunteering for farmers
Many of Cambridgeshire's farmers also volunteer. They use their own equipment to help clear snow from roads that are not on the County Council's gritting routes.
Farmers that volunteer must attend one of the council's free training sessions to ensure they are properly trained and insured to clear the roads.
