Name a gritter competition

The #LancsWinterGritter competition is now closed

We have received lots of entries and our judges will be deciding on the final names soon.  

We will publish the final decision on this web page and via social media, so look out for the results.

About the competition

This winter, we have added 7 new gritters to our fleet of 45 wagons and we've given Lancashire residents the chance to name them.

We were one of the first councils to run a 'name the gritter' competition back in 2011 and as some of our fleet are already named we decided to name the new gritters too.

Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby were recently discussing gritters on This Morning. Phillip proudly talked about his namesake gritter, Phillip Snowfield which is already on the road in another county. Holly exclaimed, "C'mon! It's only a matter of time! (until I have a gritter)" Hearing Holly's plight, we knew what our #LancsWinter team had to do...

Remember Phillip Snowfield?

 

Look what happened next...

 

Here's Holly and Phil's reaction to our newest !
