Harleston Primary Pupil Wins Competition to Name New Gritter

November 16, 2021

A pupil at Harleston CE Primary Academy has spoken of his joy after winning a competition to name one of Norfolk County Council's new gritters.

After adding to its fleet, County Hall launched a competition to come up with the name for its latest snow-eradicating vehicle.

But there was delight when five-year-old Jacob Earl, who suggested the name ‘True Grit‘, was chosen as the winner  – and even received a visit from the vehicle itself.
Mrs Beaumont said: “Jacob was so proud and excited to see the name on the gritter – and so was I.”

Jacob added: “I can’t believe this is my gritter.”
