Gritter blessing at Market Rasen

With winter here, the work of the Highways Alliance to help keep us safe on the county’s roads received a blessing, with a short service at the Market Rasen depot, led by Paul Hiley, Pastor of the town’s New Life Church.

“Every winter, men, women and children die on the roads of this county and this country,” said Mr Hiley.

“Many of these accidents are preventable with more care and better driving, but sometimes road and weather conditions make our roads hazardous - and this is where these guys are so important.

“We thank them for the part they play in ensuring the safety of this region - we are truly grateful.”
