lets hope it doesnt rain at pickering....... a report in todays scarborough evening news says this weekends Pickering folk festival has had to be cancelled due to the showground being flooded. >>>report here<<< several boreholes have been sunk and it was found the water table is only 3" below the surface and more rain is due in the next few days. as the showground is on the edge of the vale of pickering this could be a common occurance. the vale is very flat for miles around and is prone to flooding after heavy prolonged rain hope it doesnt rain much in september. john.
