The volunteer snow warden initiative has been growing in the city and there are currently over 200 volunteers who help out with clearing snow and sprinkling grit on pavements across York.

A group of volunteer snow wardens in Bishophill, York.

In Bishophill and Dunnington volunteers coordinate their efforts and operate as a group.

‘I signed up to volunteer as a snow warden with the intention of keeping the sloping paths of Bishophill clear as in the previous year, some elderly residents had found the paths outside their homes hazardous for weeks on end.’ – Colin of Bishophill
