A flap valve has just been fitted on the surface water drain from Manor Road, to prevent water running back from this ditch and into the road when water levels are high. Many thanks to the County Council for doing this.

South Hinksey: Oxfordshire County Council Engineers are to fit a non-return flap-valve to a surface water drain where is empties into a field ditch: this will prevent water pouring from the ditch into the street in low-order flood events. The Parish Council requested this, and was supported by OFA. The work should be done this month. Thank you County Engineers.
