Ditch cleaning (almost) complete
During summer of 2013, the “ditch” to the west of Beach Estate was cleared by volunteers from the area. 168 tonnes of soil and debris was removed over a length 230 metres. WSCC provided £8,500 from Operation Watershed to fund the work, the bulk of which paid for equipment hire and disposal of material. This has already provided extra capacity for storage of overflow surface water during recent heavy rain. WFFAA would like to thank all those who gave time to support this project which we hope will benefit the community and that we can get everyone on board so it can be opened from end to end.
