There is a huge log around 20ftX2ft jammed across the beck Behind & above the Post Office. I guess will cause problems in the event of another flood. Whose job is it to get it removed.

So who has got the digger to sort out the drain at the end of Mitchell Lane?

Shall we take bets for when Bradford sort it out? or perhaps it should be how many more floods before it's fixed.

Drainage needs to be at the park end of Mitchell Lane to catch the water as it leaves the park.

Clearly the cause of the flooding should be sorted out at source. The drain at the bottom of Mitchell Lane is a last defence which useless if the drain is blocked.

My point was the lack of concern, and action, from Bradford. Flooding causes misery, they seem to be happy to take money from us and give very little back.

Good luck with the big stick removal guys.

Local councils were once upon a time just that. With Silsden UDC if there was a problem you would bump into a councillor. We now have just 3 councillors with limited say on Bradford Council and of those on Mr Naylor lives in the area, he is the only one who even talks to the Town Council so he can not be expected to sort everything a whole Urban District Council used to do. Silsden is just a cash cow for Bradford

No problem Mickyfinn could not have managed it without skippys brain & crane. And as skippy said today when he saw it if we would have had another big flood it could have well done some serious damage and even badley damaged or even took a bridge out shocked 8Oshocked 8Oshocked 8O so it was a happy ending for all with no damage done skippy has a crate of sherberts and a bowl of hedgehog soup to look forward to tomorrow happy :)happy :)happy :) and hillbilly has some extra logs for next year laugh :Dlaugh :Dlaugh :Dhappy :)happy :)happy :) LIFE IS GOOD
