It’s official – Alpine Street grit bin to stay!

As the Whitley Pump reported in July, the Alpine Street grit bin had a staycation this summer. The bin is now overjoyed that it and all its colleagues around Reading can stay for another winter.

It is quite content on that little corner of Katesgrove and as close to the Alps as it ever wanted to be. Winter sports holidays in Val de Depot, St Whitley am Depot or Zerdepot are definitely not its thing.

Reading Borough Council say:

All grit bins will now be retained as a result of the highways team identifying efficiency savings elsewhere in its budget.
