The water returned at 1pm today. I was quite excited. I flushed the toilet, but before attempting to do anything else I popped out to tell my two elderly neighbours that it was back.
When I returned to the house 10 minutes later, the water was off again.
I have posted this on the village Facebook page, having first deleted all other comments I made on there.
"G***** and F**** thankyou for your support over the water problem in this village, and also my concerns about the rubbish.
You will see that I have deleted the post about rubbish and all my other comments relating to the water. The reason for this is because I am clearly wasting my time and energy trying to get points across to the members of this village.
Even though you, G*****, were kind enough to post about my concerns for the elderly at the top of this village and to ask for help from the young and able bodied to bring water up here, there was no response. I have watched my neighbour struggle with water every day for the past 13 days. I am also not so young and have some health problems,so had to get my husband to leave his job to come home several times with water for me.
The water returned at around 1pm today. I managed to flush my toilet but then went off to inform my elderly neighbours that the water had returned. By the time I returned to my house, the water was off again.
I have since found out that as soon as it was switched on, those people living lower down and in the centre of the village immediately started to use it and as they were using so much, there was not enough for us at the top of the village. No doubt these are the same people who failed to offer help when it was needed. No thought or concern for anyone other than themselves. So we up here have to wait.
I am angry about all this, but mostly I am disappointed with the apathy and selfishness of many of the people in this village."
............I just don't know what else to say. I will no doubt now be the most unpopular person in this village, but am past caring.
