Wickham Skeith Thermal Imaging Project

Wickham Skeith Parish Council has booked a thermal imaging camera from the Suffolk Climate Chage Partnership. A thermal image of the surface of your house can show areas which may be conducting heat to the outside.

 

The survey has to take place in darker hours, preferably when the rooms are warm. to detect if heat is escaping. If you are interested, the survey team [comprising two councillors] will arrange to capture an image of your house which can be emailed to you. We are not experts but can signpost you to sources of information and grants if areas of the house would appear to benefit from insulation. 

Available dates are evenings 28 November and December 1, 5, 8 and 9. 

If you would us to include your house in the survey, please contact Melinda on melinda.appleby@mypostoffice.co.uk or call 01449 766879

Our sympathy to everyone who has been affected by floods or suffered damage. Please access Suffolk County Council’s (SCC) website here for further information about flood recovery: https://www.suffolk.gov.uk/about/flood-recovery-information-for-suffolk

 

SCC are asking all affected residents to report significant flooding to individual properties by using the Highways Reporting Tool at https://www.suffolk.gov.uk/roads-and-transport/highway-maintenance/report-a-highways-issue.

The Street was particularly badly affected with abandoned and broken-down cars and people sleeping in their vehicles. Verges have been worn away and silt, gravel and debris covered the carriageway. We have reported this in on the Highways link  and have been promised repair work within 20 days.
