In at the deep end

The village's intrepid stream-cleaners took on the fast flowing watercourse upstream from the bridge on Monday (Nov 3).

Working on behalf of the parish council, the five regular volunteers checked the stream for blockages and other hazards. Apart from the bulky piece of tree being manhandled on to the bank by John Richardson (left) and Garth Gregory in Nick Townsend's picture, little of note was found by this team. The other team of Tim Lewis and Graham Collyer pulled a couple of small branches out of the water, otherwise their workload was light.

Kim Francis of Brook House maintains the stream as it passes through his garden downstream of the bridge, for which the parish council offers its thanks.
