Christmas has gone and now we are in a new year, hope you all enjoyed yourselves. We are now settling into the new Executive Structure at MDDC from last Nov, it will take time to settle down, we are all on a learning curve. The main difference is that Officers make the recommendations and the Executive make the decisions, in the place of committees. There are four Policy Groups who put MDDC's policies together and a Scrutiny Group who oversees everything, every Member is involved with the running of the Council in one way or another. But primary each Member is responsible in seeing that everyone in his Ward is being represented. If there is something that you want me to do for you, don`t hesitate to contact me for any help, that is what you elected me for.

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.

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.
