Aftermath of local flooding update

Those of us that live locally are only too aware of the damage caused when the recent heavy deluge overwhelmed the drains in the area.  Severn Trent have given, and continue to give, advice on how to protect your property from these unusual occurrences when existing drains are unable to cope.

Bereavement Services are also trying to reduce run off from the cemetery, which lies on higher ground than some of the surrounding houses.

As a temporary measure they created a sandbag ‘wall’ along the most affected zone and to make a more permanent deterrent they have decided to build a ‘bund’ which will be planted with wild flowers.

Fortunately these occurrences are rare but they still cause a fair amount of damage and upset to those affected.
