This case study is about how a small village in North Yorkshire established a group to clear snow during the winter of 2010 so that people, carers, and businesses in the area could carry on their regular activities as far as possible.  The case study will be useful for those working in other isolated areas that are frequently brought to a standstill during winter. It also shows how councils can provide support for and work with committed community members.
