Community­-minded volunteers who will help neighbours during snowy or frosty conditions are being sought by Banbury Town Council.

The Neighbourhood Snow Warden Scheme sees volunteers organise the gritting of roads and pavements in the areas where they live.

About 80 wardens came forward last year but were rarely called into action.

This year might see the return of snow and ice, and more wardens are needed to be on stand-by.

Town council leader Kieron Mallon said: “Snow wardens are important and valued members of the community.

“They keep our roads, pavements and footpaths safer for everyone throughout the winter.

“Wardens look after roads and footpaths in the town that are not on priority gritting routes and help keep the town moving at times when snow and ice could restrict travel.

To volunteer all the town council on 01295 250340.
