PATHS to schools will be gritted for the first time ever in response to parent demand.

Barnsley Council says that more than 12,000 tonnes of grit have been moved into Barnsley in preparation for the winter weather.

And this year, in response to requests made by the borough’s schools, additional gritting routes have been added in for when it snows - to try to ensure children can get to school and parents don’t need time off work.

I remember when my Grandad was alive he told me that during the depression they had to clear snow off the foot paths maybe if people that are doing community hours could do the same

i remember going back 32years ago when i was in junior school, if boilers broke down at school due to bad snow, we used to get sent home and sometimes if the boilers couldn't be fixed, we'd have a week off.

I agree Maz, let the community pay back lot clear the snow forthe kids. It may make our kids realise that there are always consequences for our actions and society will be better for their generation when they grow up cos with the way society is going at the moment we are all going to be ******!

Why dont you lot get out and clear the roads for your kids. Always someone elses job.

Brilliant news. The govt should provide more cash to local councils to endure all roads are gritted and clear so everyone can get to work. It's ridiculous when only a few inches of snow falls and roads are blocked resulting in 'snow days'.
