Update by Joan Tatters

Good Morning All,

Just to let you know the repair work to the bridge has already started, Terry tells me it will take approximately 8 weeks to complete. (The bridge is clearly "poorly") After all the metal work is complete the painting can commence, after which the pipe work will follow.  I will keep you informed as we progress along, so please keep an eye out for my posts.

No other work can be conducted while this work is happening, so please be assured there has been and will not be any disruption to your water supply or it's pressure during this time.

Don't forget if you want to ask us any questions about the work please just drop me a line or if you see Terry or any of his team please feel free to ask them.
