York has over 200 Snow Wardens across the city. Volunteers receive training, equipment and insurance cover. They pick up where and when to keep pavements free of ice and snow and make a real difference to their neighbourhoods.
City of York Council issues volunteers with a high visibility vest, warm hat, gloves, a snow shovel and a supply of grit which is topped up when required.
If you would like to find out more, or if you would like to become a volunteer snow warden, please contact the Environment and Community team at City of York Council on 01904 553676 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
