CREATIVE?children at a school in Petersfield have got down to some real nitty gritty by playing a name game with the county’s road-salting crews.

The young pupils from year one and year two at Petersfield Infant School were challenged to name two of the gritters used in around the town during the winter in Hampshire County Council contractor Amey’s ‘Name A Gritter’ competition.

It proved to be a tough choice for the judges but after some deliberation the winning year one entry was ‘Crunchie’ while ‘Freddie Salted’ was deemed the best in year two.

These names will be emblazoned on the gritter lorries for the next two years as they carry out their work across Hampshire. The gritters visited the school last Friday, when the winners collected prizes and got to see their wining name on the machines.

The children are pictured with the gritters in the playground of the St Peter’s Road school.
