Flooding in the Village
Following the flooding that has occurred over the last month in the village and the discussions at the recent parish council meeting, councillors agreed to engage with Cheshire East, our local councillor Sarah Pochin and the Environment Agency to investigate whether there are any issues with regard to drainage layout and management of excessive water within the village. Councillors also agreed to try and check that all drains are cleared and in working order and to endeavour to make sandbags available for residents in the village as a way of mitigating any flooding that may occur in the short term. Further updates will be provided.
