Many residents of Watford, and especially, schools, have used WRAP, the Watford scrapstore. Since mid-January it's relocated and is open in relatively swanky premises on the Croxley Business Park. Open for business at the usual times and welcoming members with a good supply of recycled art materials.

Local school children were forced to risk their lives on the dual carriageway yesterday, when their safe path home was completely flooded. The bridge led down to the tarmac path, which in turn led them into what had basically become a pond. They first had to walk along the hard shoulder, then when that disappeared they had the tough choice of a slippery mud bank down into the flood or walking along the dual carriageway itself. Sadly they chose the latter.

We were out walking our dog and couldn't access Radlett Road from Bushey Mill Lane as the flood water was too deep on foot. Some cars were driving through it slowly. Underneath the bridge near Top Golf the river has burst its banks. I have enclosed a couple of photos taken today at 2pm.

I hope that safety considerations have been carefully considered for this car free school for parents coming from all over town. However the staff will have 44 car spaces - 35 of which will come from the already well used nearby Avenue car park as regulars will be asked to take a running jump. − CuetipWork to turn Lanchester building, in West Herts College, into Watford Town Community Free School to begin »
