A new £10,000 tractor to cut grass and grit the town’s footpaths has been unveiled by Pocklington Town Council.
The tractor, which has been paid for out of the council’s reserve funds, will primarily be used to maintain Pocklington cemetery and grass verges throughout the town.
However, during the winter months, the machine will really come into its own if the area is again hit by severe cold weather.
Plans are in place to get an attachment to spread grit with the machine if the pavements around Pocklington become treacherous.
