Gloucestershire County Council is inviting all primary school children to enter a competition to help name our county’s new road gritters.

All they need to do is complete an entry form by colouring in a picture of a gritter and giving it a name.

Please go to What will you call our new gritters to download the entry form and return to GCCHighways@amey.co.uk or post to Customer Contact Centre, Amey Highways Gloucestershire, 5th Floor, Block 5, Shire Hall, Gloucester GL1 2TH

Winning schools will receive a prize and a visit from the Amey winter crews with their gritter proudly displaying its new name.
