The Town Council is once again participating in Essex County Council's Winter Salt Bag scheme. We have over a tonne of salt bags to distrubute free to local residents to help support keeping us moving if we have a cold snap this year. With some newspapers predicting we will have the coldest winter for a century, the need for salt this year may be greater than ever.
In snow and ice, the County Council will focus on the major road network with their gritting, which means that the High Street should be clear - not much help if you can't get off your drive. If as a community we salt and grit the paths and roads outside our homes, we will help to keep Epping moving if we do get snow and ice this year.
