Gritting at memorial

THE war memorial in Wargrave will be gritted for this year’s Remembrance Day parade.

Wargrave Parish Council has agreed to spread sand on the memorial in Station Road after deciding against installing an anti-slip surface on the steps.

The issue was first raised with the council in November after complaints about the slippery surface during the parade.

Council chairman Richard Bush said: “If we did put on an artificial surface we might get in trouble so I think spreading some unsalted sand when it gets to November will do the trick.”
