It’s thumbs up for King’s Lynn’s Winter Warrior

Pupils at a Lynn school have been taking a closer look at the new gritter that one of their classmates named.

Callum Taylor, pictured above front right, came up with the name Winter Warrior, which was one of eight winning entries chosen in Norfolk County Council’s Name the Gritter competition – to the delight of his fellow pupils at Howard Junior School in Gaywood.

The machine is one of 24 new gritting lorries that have been bought by the council at a cost of around £1.9 million with the hope of keeping Norfolk’s roads free of ice and snow this winter. The competition for primary school pupils to name eight of the vehicles was organised to celebrate the investment.

Callum, together with his friends in class 3HW, saw the lorry close up when it came to the school on Monday. Pictured with them, back, from left, are the school’s headteacher, Gregory Hill, driver Mark Foster and class teacher Tina Wright. Photo: ALAN MILLER MLNF14AM01266
