At last night’s Council meeting, (30 September), the Town Mayor presented Certificates of Merit to Dr Peter Street and Norman Light in recognition of their support of the Crow Stream Flood Alleviation Scheme.

Both men had given up a huge amount of their own time to assist with the design, planning and implementation of the scheme, and their local knowledge, commitment and enthusiasm had been a driving force in ensuring the works were carried out to such a high standard.

The restored stream is now an attractive amenity and a haven for wildlife, and its capacity has been significantly increased in order to help prevent future flooding in the area.

Congratulations to you both, it just goes to show what can be achieved with a little community spirit.
