Work at the bottom of the sports pitches complete

Ditch Clearance at the sports field

Ditch Clearance at the end of the sports field

The work to open out the ditches at the bottom of the sports field has now been completed.

The Parish Council has cleared the trees and undergrowth that was obscuring the ditches at the bottom of its sports field at Glebelands. The ditches were found to be blocked by a combination of debris from the undergrowth and silt coming down stream.

This explains the constant flooding of the bottom of the sports pitches during the spring and winter months.

The Parish Council has now cleared the ditches involved and dug them to an acceptable level in the hope that this will alleviate future problems.
