Residents are once again being offered free bags of grit and rock salt as part of Richmond Council's annual winter initiative to tackle snow and ice.

Although Londoners have enjoyed a prolonged spell of mild weather in recent weeks, temperatures will undoubtedly fall over the winter months and so the Council is once more offering borough residents up to 50 kilos of grit free-of-charge to help them clear frozen footpaths.

The rock salt will be available for collection from the Council's Depot in Langhorn Drive, Twickenham, TW2 7SG, from Monday 14 November until Friday 18 November 2022 between the hours of 9am and 3pm.

As the depot is a secure area, you will need to sign in at the gate reception so please ensure you have photo ID and proof of address with you when you arrive.

The Council's winter gritting service, which runs from October to April, will continue to keep main roads clear of any snow and ice and ensure entrances to important public buildings remain accessible.
