Autumn and winter bring with them an increased risk of flooding to the lower part of the village. The Parish Council has been given 200 empty sandbags which can be used to help stop flood water entering houses.

If you would like to have some of these, please contact Cllr Richard Eastley on 266165. Cllr David Atkins has also reminded the Parish Council that many properties used to have a flood board which would be sealed with clay and this could be used as a longer term preventative. Please contact David for more advice on 264003.
