Our demo last October sought financial support for groundwork so we would be able to use temporary flood barriers to protect the village. Great news that our Vale District Council agreed recently to pay for this groundwork – needed to level the land, and provide for crossing the field ditch.

Various permissions have to be sought, plans drawn and contracts agreed, so it will be some time till diggers appear. Surveying has already begun.

While the Environment Agency cannot promise barriers until the day, this makes it much more likely we’ll be protected.

Thanks to everyone who came to the demo – and all the other support!
