Name the Dorset gritting and ploughing vehicles

We’re asking residents to get creative and suggest Dorset-themed names for our 12 largest gritters.

After their hard work last winter, we think our dedicated gritting and ploughing vehicles deserve some recognition!

From Yeti-minster to Brrrweston and down to Cold Harry Rocks, wherever you live in Dorset, we need your help.

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

Get your suggestions to us by Friday 5 October, either email, leave a comment below or tweet @DorsetCC with #DorsetGrit

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