Sensible Action

Just been chatting with Bob Martin, he tells me that when the Leaders of the Council called after the flash flood, he bundled them all in his car and took them for a tour of the area, to show them where the water came from. I think that was an inspired idea. After all I drove down Oldwood Road from Oldwood Common some time after the rain had passed and it was still more like driving down a river than a road.

The damage in Market Street was the result of the problem, but not the cause.

I think it's time to invest in some medieval technology like ditches and catch ponds and not to rely too heavily on narrow underground pipes.
