The recent rains caused the River Culm to rise to levels not seen for 15 years, according to local residents.  Both the Culmbridge Road and Station Road were flooded enough to make driving them a risky business.  The water at Whitehall was level with the humps of the two small bridges there. 

On Station Road and Culmbridge Road, many cars turned back, some tried it and made it and some tried it and flooded their engines.   Local Good Samaritan Roy Brook said he had towed 4 vehicles out so far from the Culmbridge Road.  See the photos in Read More...

There has been a raised footpath near the Culm River at Hemyock for more years than people can recall.  It has meant dry feet for many when the river flooded and its features have been a unique welcome on the road into the village from Wellington.

In the spring of this year, the Rectory received a new resident - a Springer Spaniel puppy called Coco. He was born on Easter Day, is now seven months old and keeping us all on our toes. He's a delightful character and a good companion to whoever he happens to with at any given time. But of course, like any dog, he can be hard work and expensive - what with vets fees and a splendid appetite - and there are moments when the full reality of his reliance upon us hits home. Fortunately, I have kept dogs before and am fully aware of the tremendous commitment we undertake when buying one. Sadly, not everyone thinks this through and they fail to hear the RSPCA's warning that 'A dog is for life, not just for Christmas.'

The village and surrounding area has been shocked with the recent tragic deaths of Terry Frost and teenager Laura Persey and through the Pump we send love and condolences to their families and friends. Laura is the third young person connected to the Culm Valley Young Farmers Club to die in recent years through exceptionally sad circumstances and our thoughts are with members of the club.
