At its last meeting, Rawreth Parish Council agreed to buy a pair of waders for it’s clerk, Hayley Bloomfield. This may seem unusual , but seems very sensible, as †Mrs Bloomfield has been very active, walking through waters to help deliver sandbags and to check on conditions. This is very much to her credit.
This may seem †a minor matter, but symbolises the flooding problem in parts of Rawreth and the determination of the parish councillors and clerk to try to deal with it. It would be interesting to know if other parishes in the district †have provided waders for their clerks.
