Bolton Council are urging local people to stock up on grit supplies ready for the winter to use on their paths and driveways.
Bolton Council already has a huge stockpile of grit which it began storing from October but has said it doesnt have the resources to grit all roads and paths in the borough.
There are many places in Bolton where grit and snow shovels can be purchased for private use including local garden centres and DIY stores and now is the best time to make these purchases while demand is not high and stocks are plenty.
Grit bins are also located in 560 areas across Bolton for use by residents to spread on footpaths and roads but should not be used for private areas.
As the last two winters have given Bolton substantial snow fall, Bolton Council are urging residents to get prepared early and to consider such things as parking cars considerately so as to allow plenty of room for the gritting lorries to get through.
At thebestof bolton we have several businesses that come highly recommended and can make sure that you survive the winter months with ease.
Shaw Street Garage is a fantastic local business who can offer Winter Health Checks on your vehcile to make sure it is road worthy all through the Winter and Campcraft in Bolton offers a range of shoes, boots and accessories including the all important sledges to make those snowy days much more enjoyable.
if you are in business then you will know the feeling when business is interupted because of difficult weather conditions. If this affected you last year or even if you want to make sure your business carries on as normal during bad weather, you need to speak to Digicomm BCS, Full Circle IT or Comms Consult about your business continuity. Be prepared and make sure you have a contingency plan in place so that your customers still experience the same service as they would throughout the rest of the year.
