Village hit by floods and power cut

PEPPARD was hit by floods and a power cut three times in five days.

Part of the playground at the village primary school was under water after a pipe burst on Thursday last week and the children had to be sent home.

On the same day, the school and hundreds of homes and businesses in and around the village lost power for up to nine hours when tree branches interfered with overhead cables.

Then on Monday, the school playground was flooded again and it was declared out of bounds.

Staff first discovered the problem at the Church Lane school when they arrived for work on Thursday.
