Stop what you’re doing… The winners of the Name a gritter competition have been decided!
Children from across the county have entered with great enthusiam to come up with names for 8 of our newest gritter trucks as part of Norfolk County Council’s ‘Name a Gritter competition’.
We in the press office had a lot of fun looking through the name ideas. From the Christmassy to the bizare, it was tough deciding which were worthy winners and we asked members of the Environment, Transport Development & Waste team to pick their favourites.
The winners were:
Blitzen Blaster – Caister Junior School
Boudica – Falcon Junior School, Norwich
Chittygrittybangbang – Thorpe House Langley Prep School, Norwich
Freya Frost – Kinsale Junior School, Norwich
Grittersaurus – Yaxham CoE VA Primary School, Dereham
Ice Interceptor – Caston C of E (VA) Primary School, Attleborough
The Grittenator – Horsford C of E Junior School, Norwich
Winter Warrior – Howard Junior School, King’s Lynn
We visited Caister Junior School today who submitted an amazing 20 entries to the competition with the help of their teacher Miss Watling.
We would like to thank and congratulate everyone who took part in the competition! We hope that everyone has learnt a bit more about staying safe during the winter as well as learning about how our hard working team keep our roads safe.
Be on the look out for all the newly named gritters as they head out on their patrols in the pending frostier weeks! We can’t wait to hear your name suggestions next year!
