If you’re looking for something else active to do during the lockdown, take the opportunity to clean the drains outside your house. With autumn here and wind and rain on the way, drains can quickly become blocked with leaves. You can help avoid flooding around your property and street by removing any leaves that are clogging drains. Council contractors do regularly clear drains, but leaves can quickly build up especially in windy conditions at autumn time. So build a leaf pile for the children, make mulch for the garden or just enjoy some time out in the fresh air helping out your street.
