  • Since you came and unblocked the road drains here the problem has moved to the surface water manhole behind village hall. The neighbour reported to me that when it rains huge amounts of water run across his land. I have tried to unblock the manhole but it is 2 meters deep and not draining, I have used 8-10 mtrs of drain rods but the outflow pipe is still blocked by road sludge and debris. The manhole cover had lifted off its brickwork. Please suck out and clear the drain. Regards Colin Benham, 07850961638 village hall chairman.
