A search has begun to find people willing to help others this winter by volunteering for the new 'Snow Champions' scheme set up by Cumbria County Council.
The programme is aiming to recruit 300 volunteers to help clear snow and ice from pavements and footpaths near their homes.
The council say the scheme is the first of it's kind in the county and will provide additional assistance to their winter gritting services.
