East Donyland Parish Council holds a store of salt bags in the council garage in the Village Hall car park, and residents are welcome to collect salt to help keep the public paths and roads where they live clear during cold weather.

There are also salt bins for public use located on Taylors Road and Rectory Road (near Hillview Close), and a third bin on Church Street.

If you feel that you could help the community to keep paths and highways clear during the winter months, please have a look at the volunteer briefing sheet below for advice and guidance when clearing snow and ice.
