After suffering weeks of gales and rain, villagers were dealt another blow last night when the power was lost in a night of high winds. The power came back on approx. 16:45 today. So we can have the central heating and the TV back on!
The Splash is still unpassable to all but the bravest with 4×4 vehicles. Don’t chance it!
More trees have been blown down, including one in the Church grounds. Let’s hope this signals the end of the bad weather.
Welcome to 2014.
If you listened at midnight, you would have heard the church bells at Tarrant Monkton ringing in the New Year.
Merry Christmas to everyone. The sun is finally shining after all the rain and gales we have experienced. I know a number of folk have suffered from loose ridge tiles and fence panels blown down. I hope nothing too serious has happened. In the meantime, I look forward to seeing many of you at The Langton Arms today, which is open 12 – 2 for drinks.
Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year!
