GULLY MANAGEMENT

In order to ease the flow of water during the wetter months, we would like to ask residents who have gullies near their properties to monitor them and advise when they need clearing.  
As you can imagine we have 100s within Purton and to keep them monitored would be impossible, so any help by the community would be welcomed. 
If you are unsure if their are any in your area, we can advise.
Without support for the community in monitoring and advising that they need clearing we cannot ensure the free flow  and hopefully reduce flooding and help control water management. 
Please contact the Parish Council Office if you would like to help. 01793 771066.
