AN appeal has been made for volunteers to help with gritting in Thurso. It came from Thurso Community Council chairman, Ron Gunn, who said: " As in previous years, Highland Council is offering assistance to communities who wish to take action in their own area to help clear snow and ice from footpaths, by providing salt in either bins or heaps, snow shovels and pushers, gloves and hi-vis vests as well as health and safety advice to volunteers and public liability insurance."
He added: "Thurso Community Council is aware there are folk who already volunteer to help in this way and we want to take up Highland Council's offer. We already have a volunteer who is willing to be the point of contact between the council and any volunteers. We would like any person who is already helping with the gritting or anyone who would like to help to contact us either by a message to Thurso Community Council Facebook page or email firstname.lastname@example.org. This would ensure all volunteers have access to the equipment and are covered by public liability insurance."
