Flooding help

Please find some information and links that may be useful in the event of further flooding in our villages:

If you are at risk of flooding:

  • deploy flood defences (e.g. sandbags, door barriers) if you have any
  • move vehicles to a safe area
  • turn off power (unless you have a pumped flood system)
  • close windows and doors if it’s safe to do so
  • retreat to a safe place (such as the upper level of a building or a friend’s house) and lock doors
  • move pets, items of value and your handbag upstairs or raise off the floor
  • keep phones, chargers, bank cards, medication, insurance details and house keys to hand
  • ensure that your neighbours know that a flood is predicted/happening and help out if possible
