Children from infant and primary schools across the county have helped to name some of Surrey's brand-new fleet of gritters which will help keep our roads safe over the winter.

The new vehicles operate more efficiently, have state-of-the-art technology on board and produce less carbon emissions.

Over 200 schools were invited to take part in a competition to name a gritter and the winning names are now displayed on the fleet and are travelling around the county delivering the winter service.

The winning entries are:

  • Merry Gritmas!
  • Gritty Mouse
  • Gritley Come Dancing
  • Grit Me Out of Here!
  • Sir Salt-a-Lot
  • Thaw, God of Grit
  • Alfred the Grit
  • Good Morning Gritain
  • Unforgrittable
  • Father Gritmas
  • Let it Grit
  • Hansel and Grittel
  • Gritzen
  • Hagrit
