Michael Pyle and Richard Batten have been clearing overhanging and fallen trees in the river at ‘School Field’ (field that the hall looks over). This will help free up the flow of water and reduce the risk of flooding further up.
After visiting the site, Cllr Howgill noted: ‘I have to say what has been done looks a great improvement in my eyes, to an area that has been neglected for a long time. Also, with Highways clearing the Grange Road ditches this morning, it looks like the flooding might hopefully become less of an issue in the future.’
