Flood Risk: Update

Update as at 10:30 on Monday 30 April:

  • I am pleased to report that no houses were flooded and all village drainage systems worked as planned.
  • Although Water Lane was flooded it worked as designed carrying excess water quickly down the lane and into the Dumble at the far end where there is more capacity. 
  • The water flow control board at the brick weir was swept away due to the force of the water. Robin is in the process of organising a replacement..
  • My thanks go to Robin & Team for their diligence in a difficult situation.
