Hawkinge will now be able to look forward to a brighter future after
power company EDF repaired the electrical fault in an underground power
cable which has recently dogged the village.

The cable problems were not restricted to Hawkinge and villages in the
area including those in the Elham Valley suffered from the low voltage
and intermittent supply.

There was a serious dip in power on Sunday (18 January) but on Monday morning after
two brief interruptions to the supply which lasted just a few seconds,
the new equipment was successfully installed.
