Blocked drain causing flooding over last two weekends & forcing cancellation of a village event.

Reported in the Drainage category by Tracy Lambourne at 18:49, Monday 17 February 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 2 minutes later

The drainage grill at the road edge by the steps to the Church and War Memorial in Church Lane was discharging water instead of taking it and the water was flowing about 250 yds down Church Lane and the bridleway before joining the stream. The drainage pipe is blocked ad needs fixing.

We had to cancel a village event involving children due to the danger
