Storm Eunice

Nowadays, significant bad weather storms are given names. Storm Eunice struck on 18th February 2022, causing damage in many parts of the country. In Market Lavington, we are told that the roof came off the football building on the Davis Field and we have heard of some loss of roofing slates, damage to a summer house and a tree down on White Street. Hopefully no-one has suffered too much destruction.

Our curator spotted part of a tree that had fallen in St Mary’s Churchyard.

Fortunately, it seems to have avoided damaging any surrounding gravestones.

All in all, Storm Eunice does not seem to have wrought as much Havoc at Lavingtons as the unnamed storm of 1957 which brought down 2,000 trees and killed a cow and calf in Market Lavington.
