PREPARE FOR THE SNOW
FREE GRIT FOR THE WINTER
Be ready for snowy and icy conditions by collecting free grit on the weekend of 24-25 November
Sutton Council is offering residents and businesses in the London Borough of Sutton the opportunity to collect 10kg of free grit per household or business to use on footpaths, pavements or roads in front of their homes or business premises.
You can also collect grit for your elderly friends and neighbours, or residents/businesses who don’t have cars. The free grit is available from the following locations:
* Woodcote Green Garden Centre:- Saturday 24 November, 9am – 5.30pm (The garden centre is open until 7pm that day, but we will only be giving out grit until 5.30pm.)
* Woodmansterne Lane, Wallington:- SM6 0SU: Sunday 25 November, 10am – 4pm
* Kimpton Park Reuse and Recycling Centre:- Saturday 24 November, 9am – 5pm
* Kimpton Park Way (off Oldfields Road, A217), Sutton, SM3 9QH:- Sunday 25 November, 9am – 2pm
We will also be arranging deliveries for residents that are on an assisted waste collection. If you already receive an assisted collection and are interested in receiving free grit this winter, please get in touch with the Council’s contact centre, where your details will be taken.
Grit at Kimpton Park Reuse and Recycling Centre and Woodcote Green Garden Centre will be ready bagged.
Please note proof of residency or that you have a business in the London Borough of Sutton will be required for yourself and any other household or business you are collecting grit for. Please bring along relevant council tax, business rates (NNDR) or utility bills for each household or local business.
We hope you’ll join us in checking in with vulnerable neighbours to see if they need help in cold weather.
POWER CUTS – The cold weather is upon on us. Do you or someone you know need extra support during a power cut?
Although power cuts don’t happen very often when they do they can be worrying. UK Power Networks is the electricity network for London and it provides a ‘Priority Services Register’ for people who might need extra help in a power cut. Older people, families with very young children, and people with specific medical conditions are among the many people who are eligible to register for free support. You can find more details and register by visiting ukpowernetworks.co.uk/prioritysupport or calling 0800 169 9970.
