Latest news and information for village residents

Blocked Brook

Many people will remember the terrible floods of July 2007 which seriously flooded many homes in Weston-sub-Edge. A bypass system has been built which will help in the future but keeping Coombe Brook clear is vitally important.  Recently there was very heavy rain which swelled the brook that ran very fast moving debris which was in the brook upstream. Some  large logs (see pictures) collected together to form a dam causing the water to backup. Fortunately these were spotted and removed  before the brook overflowed. Could all those who have the brook running through or near their property ensure that the brook is kept clear and that debris/logs are not placed in or near the stream.

The Village Hall is run by a group of volunteers many of whom are trustees of the charity.  The trustees are looking for a volunteer who is prepared to act as the bookings secretary.  This involves taking bookings by phone and/or email and managing the correct paperwork and bookings diary.  It is estimated that the work involved is only a couple of hours a week and full training will be given.
