We have just been informed that the water main on Main Street outside New Stone House (at the southern end of the village) has just gone ‘pop’ and there is rather a lot of water everywhere. Thames Water has been informed and will be in the village shortly to sort this out.
Almost concurrently (but not related), one of the high voltage power cables by the Village Hall has burst into flames. The fire has been put out and the power has been transferred to one of the other cables, but SSE has advised that there will be a power outage in the next few hours in order that the engineers are able to work on fixing the issue.
We hope that more information will be available shortly. Updates will be posted here on the Parish Council website and on the Facebook page.
