New salt bin for the town centre

Whitchurch has received it’s new salt bin to help keep the town centre streets clear of ice for shoppers and visitors. It arrived just in time for the most recent snow falls and has already been replenished twice by Hampshire County Council.
The bin is presently situated in Bell Street Car Park.

The need for further provision in the town centre was highlighted by last year’s salt shortages when it was left to a team of local volunteers to obtain a trailer of grit and to carry out most of the pavement clearing.
