    Even in the last couple of weeks we've had news of flooding in parts of the South West and South Wales after a short but very heavy downpour. It's one of the reasons for the choice of our current site, we cannot be flooded.
    I've seen this pattern of winter weather getting warmer and wetter over the last few years and I'm sure the trend is set to continue. Merry Christmas 2017 to all the residents of the Vale of York, Carlisle, Lancaster, Hull and the Lake District. Let's hope it's a dry one.

    I was brought up and still live,overlooking a valley which is a flood plain.When we bought this house,we made sure it was high.Its high! Most of the old locals have gone now, but back in the day they expressed their dismay at building ever closer to the river.And they are still building,and houses have flooded frequently.
