Flooding along a footpath leading from Railey Road to Northgate Avenue should be a thing of the past after £6,498.42 was granted to deal with the problem.

The application was submitted by the Northgate Matters neighbourhood forum. The money comes from the county council’s Operation Watershed Active Communities Fund, which was set up in March to support people in their local communities who want to work with the council over flooding risks. The cheque was presented to forum chairman Pat Teague by Cllr Peter Lamb.
