Winter tip of the day for Councils
Please, Pretty please…………. in future in winter weather, send someone out with a shovel to clear Ice off pavements that go downhill, or have some other form of slope on them.
Nearly every winter I nearly break my neck on the pavement heading down into the village where I live (and I’m sure there’s people elsewhere who suffer similar problems). It got me again today, resulting from the agonising pain (for 10 – 20minutes) of a pulled muscle in my right shoulder.
Tuesday afternoon just gone, the pavements were so bad in places even the flat sections of pavement (such as the one along the wall at the bottom end of the local cemetary) were lethal…. even in a pair of Hi-Tec Eurotrek Hiking boots.
