EA Drop in Surgery

This took place in the Village Hall on 27th May. It was an opportunity to meet people from the Environment Agency and other bodies informally to discuss and review the floods of the past winter, and see their plans to prevent or at least alleviate the problem in the future.

We have included comments here from David Martin and Ivor Dixon, who attended the afternoon session. If anyone has any additional observations, please use the comments facility on this post.

We're back!

Having moved hosts, the Parish Council website (DragonFlyer2) is back in business. If anyone experiences problems accessing items on it, please let Ivor Dixon know as soon as possible.

We can now start the hard work of rebuilding and updating the content, so your suggestions as to what we need to keep, what to ditch or what to improve would be welcome. Use the comments box below to do this.
