The Environment Agency were in the village this afternoon checking our flood defences. They have shut the floodgate near the Church and assure us that the pen stock at the bottom of Meadow Lane is shut. They have also checked the pumping station at Filberts Walk which is doing its job. The River is expected to peak again tonight so please take care if you are out and about.
