Send Out The Dove


The dove (or perhaps it is a pigeon) has returned from flying over Abingdon surveying the water level.

The level of the River Thames has gone down several steps from last week's high.

The River Ock now flows at a much lower level beneath the Drayton Road.

BUT the Ock Valley Walk has been eroded and patched up, trees have fallen and caused mud slides into the river, a lot of the work the Green Gym did wood chipping a second path is washed away...

And people are still in temporary accommodation. The elderly people who live in these homes are likely to have quite a long wait until they return home.

No olive branch quite yet.
