The Council have no obligation to do the footpaths, only the highways they are responsible for.

Why did the numbskull in charge of Pontypool College actually open the place. The Car park was covered in snow and unsafe.

Dave on his Soapbox says...

.....yes Cameron's 'Big Society' at work not.....I cleared outside my house as dd one or two others......being a main thoroughafare to St Julians.....which was like the Cresta Run....for anyone who tried to walk on the pavement...the other alternative was for the kids to walk down the edge of the road......and how many have the sense to walk facing on coming traffic.....not many.
On the Wales news the RGH was reported to have a large increase i A&E due to falls.........it's not H&S...just the council leaving pedestrians to fend for themselves....
I bet the Old Green footpath past the castle hasn't been cleared.....
Luckily for me...now I superfast broadband and get 62 meg.....I can work from home.

Simple solution - buy some cheap snow studs that fit over shoes or wellies- no problem walking then even on ice.

Gwent does not exist. It was a failed local government experiment. Born 1974 to universal hatred. Died 1996 - SIXTEEN YEARS AGO!
