Needless to say, that the team had a hard time whittling them down to four winners which were: The Spready Arrows; Sir Ice-acc Newton; The Jolly Gritterman and Mar-grit Thatcher.

Cllr Clio Perraton- Williams, Executive Support Councillor for Highways, said: “We’ve had some great suggestions and it was really difficult to pick just four.

“However, the winning entries were particularly creative and original and all had a distinct Lincolnshire connection.

“We’d like to thank everyone who took part – I think that we’ve been able to come up with four fantastic names for our gritters!”
