Big thank you to all the villagers who turned out this afternoon to help prevent the Methodist church from flooding. Sandbags have been placed out across cottage Lane and Don Mansell and Tony Rumble brought pumps to expel the water from the chapel grounds. It was so great to see youngsters joining in with the older residents so enthusiastically. Youngsters these days generally get such a bad press, but our young villagers should be commended on their efforts. So a special thank you to them.
Our grateful thanks go to this hard working team of “Flood Busters” who worked tirelessly for over three hours, sweeping and clearing and digging channels to try and divert the source of the flood. Everybody played an important part – we even had our own female traffic controller, who did a valiant job at keeping the rush hour traffic flowing (if you pardon the pun) through the village.
Thank you so much to everyone for helping to keep our Methodist Chapel afloat. And lets hope the rain stops soon, otherwise we shall have to convert it into an Ark!
Whitacre Congregation is a vibrant mix of young and old who enjoy meeting for Sunday worship. Do come and join us.
