Community Concern: Serious concern is been expressed locally and nationally about the continuing bad weather. Elderly people in the parish make comparisons to 1947 as the last time they witnessed such a crisis. The farming community are badly hit due to fodder shortages and poor growth and the huge cost of animal feed. Gardeners are also affected with late planting due to very wet conditions. Hopefully we will see a big improvement soon.
