Port Navas Flooding

Acqua Alta in Port Navas

Acqua Alta in Port Navas

Very heavy rains in mid-September caused unusually severe flooding in Port Navas. A deluge of mud engulfed the village hall forecourt and threatened the hall itself.

A few days later, in typical Port Navas style, a gang of locals dug out the forecourt, laid a new membrane and, with help from the redoubtable Tim Lugg and his digger, replaced the gravel surface. Roger Wickens fashioned Venetian style protection for the hall doorway and order was restored.
