FLOODING - After the recent severe weather, several houses in the village were flooded out, one on Drury Street which was under water and a home in Lincoln Road was pumped out by the fire brigade.

There was sustained water damage to carpets and other personal effects. There is a reminder on the village notice board, advising people to ask advice from the Women’s Royal Voluntary Service (WRVS) volunteers to learn of how to cope in a flood.

People are now aware that it is not only people who are living near rivers and streams who are, or who can be, affected by the adverse weather.

Flood advice can be obtained by calling parish clerk Sharon Wetherall on 0800 6343307 or or the WRVS volunteer co-ordinator Christine Moy on 07714 898600.
