This story about Fishlake’s flooding will resonate with many in Southwell.

A warning that we mustn’t forget why we need to keep an eye on maintenance of drains, ditches, Potwell Dyke, strainers/gratings on culvert or become complacent that our flooding problem is solved because we’ve had mitigation installed.

Community resilience and “feeling that you’re doing something and that you’re contributing to the public good as well as your own good” keeps us together as a town and safeguards those whose houses are at risk.
