Daffodil Bulbs

The Parish Council has begun a programme of planting daffodil bulbs around the village. This will be an ongoing project. In 2014 bulbs were planted at the entrance to Station Road, on the slope at the entrance to Church Street and outside the cemetery. It is planned to plant more of them in other locations around the village in 2015. For reference the bulb type is "Carlton".

Defibrillators

Following a presentation by the Community Heartbeat Trust, the Parish Council is investigating installing defibrillators in the village. One in Station Road and one in Church Street. Training on their use is not necessary as the units issue instructions which are repeated by the emergency services on the telephone. However the Parish Council is looking into arranging general first aid training.

Anglian Water update -

Anglian Water updated the Parish Council on the results of their actions below and the village at the Parish Council meeting of 15th September. These results will be posted here shortly.

Actions so far:
- Pumping station electrics raised to protect against any future flooding.
- Increased pumping capacity on the Station Road pumping station.
- Camera survey completed.
- Six manholes affected by surface flooding have been sealed.
- Non-return valves installed at two pumping station overflows to stop the river entering the sewer

Current modeling is unable to replicate the flooding seen so far.

Next steps:
A flow survey will begin in January 2014 which will last 1 - 3 months depending on rainfall. The results of this will be used to produce a further model to determine if any additional capital investment is required.
