Good Afternoon,

 

Following on from our previous emails in regards to the works planned at Wassall Lane, Rolvenden, Ashford, I unfortunately have to inform you that due to the recent wet weather, it has left a high water table in the surrounding land to Wassall Lane leading to substantial ground water running off onto the carriageway, as well as beneath the surface. This has meant that so far we have not been able to start the work.

 

We are now planning to start these works again on Wednesday 25th April and we expect they will take 7 days to complete, please see attached update.

 

I apologise for any inconvenience that this may have caused. 

 

Thanks,

 

Kind Regards,

Village Defibrillators

Residents are reminded that there are two fully automated defibrillators in Rolvenden.
One is located next to the entrance of the Village Hall and the other is on the outside wall of the Ewe & Lamb in the Layne.

Should you ever find yourself in the vicinity of an incident where a defibrillator is being deployed please remember to respect the dignity and privacy of the patient involved.

Also the defibrillator gives spoken instructions to the operator and noise from onlookers can be distracting.

Thank You.
