The Parish Council arranged for Matthew Pope, our grass cutting contractor, to tidy the verge at the junction of St. Marys Close and Helpston Road. Our contractor worked in line with the latest government coronavirus regulations. Please see the “before and after” photographs.
Matthew will be cutting the grass areas in Bainton and Ashton on Friday 10th April subject to any changes in government legislation. The grass in the Bainton play area has got very long and this will be cut but residents are reminded that the playground is closed due to the virus outbreak.

We attended to this site twice prior to Christmas to ensure the 4 drainage gullies were clear of detritus, then due to the surface water returning we got a 6 inch pump on site on Wednesday 15th January and pump all the water down to the open ditch by the railway crossing, this flowed, via the culvert under the railway. we left the road dry at the close of play, however the surface water returned on the road the following day, further investigations into this found the adjacent fields was draining onto the road via the saturated ground. Therefore we then appointed a jet vac tanker with a high pressure jetter and suction capacity to completely drain down the system and surround land and then we also cleanse all the pipe work running in the verge, as this become silted with all the field run off. However with the system drained down and the pipe work all cleansed and manholes / gullies emptied, we flow tested the system and everything appears to be working adequately.
