The Natural Gas Debacle
The homes are going up round the Officers Mess, which itself is being refurbished but will they be on natural gas?
Well, we know the new village hall is on natural gas and a new gas pipe was laid from the south, going under Smith Barry Road and on to the Officers Mess.
Is this natural gas coming from
the new part of our village?
But doesn’t this mean there is now a mix of natural gas and LPG pipes in the ground, which must cross each other. But hang on, wasn’t this one of the reasons we were told why natural gas couldn’t be brought to the older part of the village; it could only happen if all houses converted to natural gas, so this mix of different gas pipes didn’t happen.
Is this old and new gas pipes at the top north west corner of the Officers Mess, next to Hawker Square?
Hmmm, sounds like we were lead down the garden pipe on this one!
Now the sales office is open for the Officers Mess and the new houses round it. Would be interesting to ask the question: are they on natural gas?
