Snow on January 23, 2013: Fair play to Cllr Dorse
7:49am Wednesday 23rd January 2013 in Chard
A MEMBER of Chard Town Council has been doing exactly what people would expect of their local council this morning - by helping the community they represent.
Cllr Julian Dorse was seen out early this morning shovelling snow and ice off of the pavement going down through Fore Street.
The News caught up with him just after 7am with shovel in hand.
Chief reporter Steve Sowden said: "Fair play to Julian for doing this and trying to make the town centre a little bit safer for pedestrians.
"Although I applaud his community spirit - surely we would have to say that this was going beyond the call of duty, especially so early in the morning."
Steve added: "I hope people will read this and when they are walking down through Chard town centre this morning - they will say 'cheers Julian!"
