Engineers from Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) Distribution are responding to the impact of Storm Henk which has brought a period of intense storm-force winds and heavy rain across central southern England.

  • Saving the emergency power cut number – ‘105’ – to your phone to report any loss of supply or damage to the electricity network
  • Visiting our Power Track Website to give you details of power cuts and restoration times. You can also report power cuts and network damage through Power Track.
  • Visiting the “Preparing for a power cut” section on our website, where there is a wealth of advice and information, or to chat live to one of our advisors via the Webchat service

Customers are also eligible for our Priority Services Register (PSR) if they:

Grounds Maintenance Issues

The whole experience with Idverde, the contractors for grounds maintenance at the Burial Ground/Churchyard and Malford Meadow this year, has been incredibly frustrating.

Despite promises from them to carry out the works and numerous requests from the Parish Council, they have come up with poor excuses, including “issues with staff and machinery and depots” and “never got on top of the grass cutting“.

We are hoping they will carry out 1 last cut in September and we will be discussing the matter at the next Parish Council Meeting on 4 October 2023 with a view to putting out new tenders for both contracts going forward.

Hopefully this will resolve the issues.
