Some of you may have noticed groundworks happening on Home Farm this spring. Before the start of these there were 3 x 300mm pipes going into a chamber and 1 x 300mm pipe going out thus water backed up and flowed down through the village causing flooding at Mead Corner. A new 500mm pipe has now been laid and the outflow is further down Home Farm’s ditch system. We must thank Ian Sargent and Jerry Curtis for giving many man hours to the project. Now we must await the rain to see if this is going to finally resolve the water issues we have in this village!
