In particular, three points of note:
- All 600 grit bins (including the new ones put in this year) in the city are currently full and there is a good map on the website - it's still a little out-of-date, but it's pretty reliable.
- The Council is tonight doing grit dumps on the pavement in strategic spots. There are, I think, 17 in Cotham and they are focused on hills and other hotspots. This is free to use, but for highways only please... not private paths as it'll run out.
- Despite what some tabloids would have you believe with their "PC gone mad" horror stories, there is no danger of being sued if you clear or grit your street or pavement. Please do help! In particular, please do help older people, disabled people and others who might have difficulty in this weather.
