Great turn out for footpath clearance

A massive thank you to all the volunteers who gave up their Saturday morning to help clear the width of the footpath from Hall farm to the American Memorial on 11th March.
In total 24 shovelled, swept and barrowed their way along the whole length of the path leaving the surface clear and free of debris.
It took 2 hours to complete before returning to the Village Hall for a welcome hot drink and a bacon roll.
Brilliant team effort - many thanks all of you on behalf of the Parish Council and Village.
Ben.

Ditches, Drains and Roadside Flooding

After a period of wet weather, many councils experience problems in their parish with over-flowing ditches and drains unable to cope.

The County Council has stated

If a river, stream or ditch runs next to or through your land you are a riparian owner.  In this case you have certain responsibilities such as ensuring that the ditch remains clear and does not cause a nuisance to the public.if you find a blocked ditch you should inform the landowner as they are often unaware that there is any issue. Your Parish Council will help you in communicating with the landowner if you do not know them.

For further information SEE HERE.
