Sand provides natural barrier

EDITOR – With reference to last week’s letter, regarding sand dredging.

The stretch along Quebec Road is covered (protected) by the sandhills and does not need sand dredging.

When the 1953 flood came, my late aunt and uncle, Syd and Doff Merriman, lived at 1 Lindum Terrace and on the morning of the flood knew nothing about it, as the only water they could see was on Golf Road and thought it was caused by heavy rain in the night.
