NO FEWER GRIT BINS IN OSCOTT
The silly season is back with us ( IT MUST BE ELECTION TIME?) and a number of clams are being made by some who are out of touch with what is happening in the area. For example claims that there were fewer grit bins in Oscott over the winter.
As you know if you read this blog I have been monitoring grit levels in the grit bins over the winter as usual and I have not noticed any fewer grit bins and due to the fairly mild winter the level of grit bins them has remained good.
I have checked with the Perry Barr District Engineers and they are looking to put some extra bins in next year if funding allows. This will be difficult because as we all know Council funding from Central Government has been severely cut back.
