Council Needs to Prioritise

Last week saw the heaviest snow in recent years causing Retford to grind to a halt.

Walking into town I came across no market and businesses closed or complaining of no custom. Residents feel that the councils (Bassetlaw and Notts) have let them down by not prioritising essential areas of Retford to clear the snow and ice.

On a positive note I have been told by members of the public that council workers have gone far and beyond to help residents by clearing snow and ice and that our refuse collectors whilst unable to collect rubbish have been helping clear snow. So a big thank you and well done to them.
