We are working together with the community to reduce the risk of future flooding in areas of Ovingham through our Rainwise initiative.

Update by Simon Bright


It slow going at Dene Close with the weather and unchartered services slowing us down. As you can see from the photos there are services everywhere we dig, Vinnie and Bernie will persist in spite of the difficulty and hopefully get the connecting drain line in by the end of next week. As mentioned earlier this week, we are trying to minimise the mud on the road with regular visits with the road brush.
