The Environment Agency have notified us that contractors will be working on the section of the path between the playing field and the new flood bank, improving the path and bringing it up to the right level. To do this they will be adding material to the landward side to support the path.
At the same time work will be done to improve the outfall close to the sewage works which was exposed a few years ago and has been allowing river water to flow into and out of the ditch system unrestricted.
Unfortunately neither of these operations can be safely carried out with continued access along the path for the public so the path will be closed temporarily. If all goes to plan, the path will be closed on Wednesday 22nd July, opened again for the weekend and then closed again for the week beginning 27th July.
