The people have spoken. After seeing off the challenge from Grita Thunberg and Arnold Salt-spread-gritter, the Herts Advertiser can today announce that Alexander The Grit will be etched on to the side of our gritter in 2020.

Back in November, the Herts Advertiser announced a new competition giving our readers the chance to name a new gritter on behalf of Hertfordshire County Council.

Many congratulations to Leann Smith for submitting the winning entry.

Keep your eyes peeled and be sure to say hello if you see Xander on your way!
