I am pleased to be able to report that overnight the water levels have gone down and that as a result no properties are in danger of flooding. However, this has been a distressing and unsettling period for many people and I will do all that I can to ensure the pumping station is enlarged – particularly with the 200+ new homes planned for the village.
One good thing that has come out of this is the support that people have been given by their neighbours and friends. Many people have told me of offers of help that have come from all over the village. It is also good to report that the County Council turned up at 9pm last night with road signs to slow traffic and more sandbags.
I have undertaken to find out what people should do about raw sewage that has been deposited around their properties and will post on this later.
