FOLLOWING the snow problems of 12 months ago I believe the council should be congratulated on their recent efforts to keep the major roads clear.
Perhaps we should look closer to home in order to clear the footpaths and reduce the number of patients visiting our A & E departments with bruises and broken bones. Even after the roads and fields were clear of snow, ice, from compacted snow, remained on the footpaths.
Is it asking too much for householders to clear the footpath fronting their property and perhaps those of elderly or infirm neighbours?
As well as being a community-spirited act, it is also the actions of a responsible and social person.
