Cambridgeshire was badly affected by the ‘Beast from the East’ in 2018 and had heavy snow in January 2019. We recommend all businesses consider how they would cope in heavy snow and ice. Businesses employ Clearway Gritting because our south east gritting teams respond quickly to bad weather and we keep our clients working during bad weather. Our winter gritting teams grit car parks and pathways so sites are safe when people turn up for work or customers visit the premises. We offer our clients peace of mind that they can continue running as normal during the bad weather.
