Contracts Manager, Brian Gibson shared information on road and footway repairs, talking pupils through the materials we use, as well as information on litter picking, flood prevention, traffic calming and gritting
Pupils then got the opportunity to meet our gritter Frost Bite and chatted with our gritter driver Stephen.
