THE VOICE IS AGAIN BEING DELIVERED TO ALL HOMES  OCTOBER EDITION

For many years we have been naming our steets to remember people and places, and the irony is we then forget who and why we commemorated them. I have compiled a list of the streetnames and as much as I can of the reasons. Have a look, please email me any additions, edits and corrections. When completed we should have a comprehensive and permanent archive.

All the complaints about flooding after the recent storms have prompted KCC to ask for our help compiling a list of blocked drains. The Parish Council has sent them a comprehensive survey of all drains, good blocked, and the "Hotspot" oneswhere we know flooding has occurred.
