In the event of flooding in the town
Please contact the Town Council.
Sand- Available from the sand bins outside School Road allotments or the hard standing area next to Centenary Fields on Gas House Lane.
You can look at local river levels online using the web cameras at either:
Environment Agency 24/7 hotline- 0800 807060 – For reporting blockages, fallen trees which might cause flooding
Protecting your property– There are also various types of sandbag alternatives, also sometimes called Flood Sacks, which are easier to store (similar to pillow cases) and are activated by soaking in clean water when needed (not flood water!) so are light to handle and can be activated in situ. Have a look at other good ideas from the National Flood Forum
Flood Wardens- If any residents are interested in volunteering as a flood warden please contact Councillor Andrew Foster on 07521 970812.
