"Make Hay While the Sun Shines" = "Make Money while it Snows "!

In the previous post, it was reported that Wesham Town Councillors had made arrangements to have as many of the public area pavements gritted. This was done with the excellent support from staff and inmates of Kirkham Prison.

During the purchase of the rock salt from an independent supplier, it has come to light that the cost per ton has increased daily. On Wednesday morning it was £125 per ton, by afternoon it was £150. The following morning (Thursday) it had shot up to £232.65. It is not surprising that the supplier would not accept an order at the end of trading on Wednesday and we were advised to place the order first thing on Thursday!

No doubt the supplier will equally blame their suppliers.

Sadly somebody somewhere is taking unreasonable advantage?

The Current Cold Spell Problems

It goes without saying that the current cold spell is causing many difficulties for everyone. Wesham Councillors have taken steps to obtain an (overpriced !) amount of rock salt from an independent supplier which has been scheduled to be spread in the most needed places. The areas around The Memorial;The Post Office; The Co-op; The 2 Schools/Church entrances, the school crossing areas and Wesham Community Centre have been identified.
The supervisors of the Kirkham Prison Service have kindly agreed to collect the salt and with the aid of the inmates, as many of the pavements will be gritted as soon as possible, subject to the quantity of rock salt available.

Our thanks to the Prison Service.
