The closure was put in place at 12:30 hours on 26th June 2020 and will remain in place for a maximum period of five days or until works are completed, whichever is sooner.

Southern Vectis route 37 is now on diversion as a result.

Bert’s brother will be miffed. He always baths fridays whether he needs it or not. And what about all those youngsters with learning difficulties down salters road, and ‘that’ teacher our Jason mates says about. Have to use a watering can instead of controlled irrigation today then.
Every cloud I suppose.

Likely uses a growing tent, all self contained system Mary. Doubt the water outage will do much damage to any crops.
