Last Thursday the rains came and caused significant road flooding across the Parish. Neither water course was involved so it was a real test of our drains, culverts, road quality and field management.
Because we have Wardens across the whole Parish I’ve received really useful information that I’ll put in a report to B&NEs. If you want me to add any information about drains/roads near you please contact me on email@example.com. B&NES help us deal with the Autumn/Winter weather by keeping drains and culverts clear so it helps all round if I can pass information to them in a timely manner.
Just a shout out for the Flood Wardens who put road signs up with a special mention for Andy and David who oversaw the very flooded Tunbridge Road. They identified the problem (a blocked culvert) and stayed out to manage traffic and were there to guide the B&NES Highways crew who came out and cleared it.
