Blessings were bestowed on gritters across the county last week.

The Rev Jonnie Parkin performed the blessing for those working out of the Willingham depot, where a new salt barn has been installed this year.

“It is about raising awareness to take care when out and about in winter and to be mindful of the dangers,” said the Rev Parkin.

“It is to thank and bless the work of the people who try and make our roads safer, helping people to arrive with their loved ones safe.”
