The flooding that has cursed many parts of the UK has claimed a predictable victim - Worcestershire's New Road ground which is under water yet again.
Worcestershire have said that relocation of their administrative operations has meant that there has been less disruption than usual, although construction work on a new 120-room hotel and restaurant has been threatened almost as soon as it has started.
The redevelopment includes new conference and executive suites and is essential to safeguard Worcestershire's financial future.
Prolonged and heavy flooding would put pressure on a deadline for completion of the club suites by June 2013, with the new hotel and restaurant scheduled to open in October next year.
Worcestershire have constructed a temporary bridge to gain access to the Graeme Hick Pavilion so all functions, including a comedy night this Friday, go ahead as scheduled.
