You have not cleared the drains for some time and that is flooding the road and overspilling into my home.

  • We are likely to flood at 6 The Row Pusey SN7 8QF. If we do we will have to tell our insurance company that we have reported the blocked drain outside our property to you. The drain is taking a the water from the B road and the fields beyond which is a huge amount. Even when it is unblocked it is not really adequate.

  • The drain is still blocked as noone has attended my first report a week ago, and we are trying to do something ourselves. It is not working. I am Andrew Douglas, 6 the Row Pusey, SN7 8QF

  • This section of the B4508 has one gully to take the rain off about 300 metres of road which collects debris. We have attempted to clear it but cannot do so by hand. It is still blocked, why have you not attended in the weeks since I reported it? Please contact me if you need more information - it is obvious but I ay be able to help you see the problem

  • As you can see form the message I sent you on 29 September and twice on1 October I am Andrew Douglas and live at Autumn Cottage, 6 The Row, Pusey, SN7 8QF. How many times do I need to tell you that? I was in the road last weekend, using my hands to remove enough of the debris in the drain sump to allow at least some water to flow away. At the age of 73, I feel that is unreasonable.
