Snow warden scheme

Snow warden scheme

The Chesterfield snow warden scheme aims to encourage people in local communities to become volunteer snow wardens.

The scheme is part of the winter weather policy to tackle extreme winter weather such as that experienced in recent years.

The scheme currently has over 50 volunteers signed up to help clear footpaths in Chesterfield in the event of inclement weather.

When the snow comes, the wardens go into operation with the training and equipment they have been provided with, and make a real impact with respect to the areas of footpaths that are cleared.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer snow warden, please contact Sam Sherlock, Senior Emergency Planning Officer, on 01246 936464, or email
