  • The drains have still not be cleared. Any prolonged or heavy rains flows all the way down Church Lane and flood the Rectory Drive and Garden

  • Still nothing been done about this problem. The drain cleaning lorry was in the village a couple of weeks ago, but didn't make it to these two drains on the corner of Church St and Church Lane. Rainwater is once again flowing down Church Lane, and flooding the Rectory drive and lawn. The water is washing dirt and debris with it, overwhelming the soakaway in the Rectory drive. Please can you tell me when something will be done about this, as it's been outstanding for over four months.
