Watery Lane Worries

There was nearly an hours discussion at Rawreth Parish Council last night about Watery Lane:

  • Disappointment that there was no-one there from the County Council
  • Discussion about possible solutions and sharing of local knowledge
  • Concern about how it is affecting Rawreth residents and businesses. One lady explained how, because lorries couldn’t deliver animal feed for over a month, she had to load half a tonne of feed herself into her own vehicle.
