No hosepipe ban but the price of beer is going up

DROUGHT looks set to grip parts of Derbyshire unless we get weeks of steady rain  – but householders have been reassured they should not face a hosepipe ban this year.

The Environment Agency yesterday  included south Derbyshire as an area at risk of drought, along with a   further swathe of the Midlands.

The main reservoirs in Derbyshire are in a healthy state – with Carsington,  near Wirksworth, 90 per cent full and Howden, Derwent and Ladybower reservoirs in the north of the county 97 per cent full.

And you should have received your water rates and guess what – it is well up on last year!

Water shortages mean that the price of beer will go up however I noticed a sign on the door of my local that said due to the water shortage beer will be back to full strength for the forseeable.
