These include litter-picks, shrub trimming and clearance, as well as looking after our local playground.
We have been lucky to escape any severe winter weather this year. However, we were well prepared for any eventuality thanks to the efforts of our intrepid Snow Wardens and all the volunteers who ensured that stores of salt and a battery of snow clearing tools were available to be deployed at a moment’s notice in strategic positions around the area.
None of our residential roads is routinely gritted in winter by BANES; main roads, bus routes and important roads are prioritised. Pedestrian routes are only gritted in severe weather conditions and where footfall is high.
The winter gritting routes and grit locations are shown at www.bathnes.gov.uk/wintergritting
There are six Grit Bins in the ARCH and St Mark’s Road areas; they are located:
– by no. 47 Holloway
– by the steps leading to no. 50 Holloway
– by the bench on the path leading to the Claverton Road subway
– at the start of St Mark’s Road
– at the start of Alexandra Road
– near the junction of Calton Road and Alexandra Road
For bins that need re-filling or for problems caused by snow and ice contact Council Connect or report a problem at www.bathnes.gov.uk/reportit
