Snow Wardens

Volunteer Snow Wardens are an important part of Rutland's winter preparations and help to keep their local communities free from snow and ice.

In winter, we have to focus on gritting the major routes around Rutland which carry the most traffic. This sometimes means smaller communities don’t receive as much help as they would like.

Our Snow Warden Scheme provides advice and training to community groups and Parish Councils who then provide help to clear snow and ice on a voluntary basis. 

Contact your Town or Parish Council if you're interested in becoming a Volunteer Snow Warden where you live.

Who can be a Snow Warden?

A Volunteer Snow Warden must:

  • Be nominated by a Town or Parish Council, or similar body
  • Have received suitable training from us to be able to carry out Snow Warden duties
  • Agree to work within the advice that we provide
  • Agree to work to the Parish Council’s plan that has been agreed with us
  • be registered with Rutland County Council

Read our Snow Warden Scheme Information Pack to learn more about being a Snow Warden.

Volunteer as a Snow Warden

Snow Wardens volunteer on behalf of their Parish or Town Council to deliver the winter maintenance support that has been planned locally. Contact your Town or Parish Council if you're interested in becoming a Volunteer Snow Warden where you live.
