Event will mark six months since flood


An event to mark the six-month anniversary of the December 5 flood will be held in the Market Place tomorrow (Thursday).

Borough council and Environment Agency officials will be on hand to give help and advice to householders and businesses about making the most of available Government grants and how they can prepare themselves by signing up for flood warnings and by making their own personal flood plans.

While stocks last, there will be free Floodlock flood defence door protection strips for the first to sign up for EA flood warnings and make their own flood plans.

The event, organised by the council, runs 10am-3pm.
