Good Afternoon, Upwood and The Raveleys District Members –
What a wet week we have had – and there is probably more rain yet to come! I hope everyone is managing to stay safe and dry – do take extra care if you are out and about during this wet weather, there will be lots of surface water on the roads and you may come across some unexpected flooding. Footpaths and fields will be wet, muddy and slippery as well. Meanwhile, here is our weekly summary of offences and incidents affecting your community reported to police during the period 7th to 13th June:
