Are you the next Thomas Hard-ski?

Dorset residents are being asked to get creative and suggest Dorset-themed names for the county council’s 12 largest gritters.

After the hard work last winter of the dedicated gritting and ploughing vehicles, the council thinks they deserve some recognition.

“From Yeti-minster to Brrrweston and down to Cold Harry Rocks, wherever you live in Dorset, we need your help,” said the council in a statement.

“Be inspired by literature, landmarks or people – Dorset has got a rich history for you to work with.”

Get your suggestions in by Friday 5 October, either email or tweet @DorsetCC with #DorsetGrit

The gritter drivers, will choose their favourite names and the vehicles will be renamed for the start of the gritting season on 1 November.
