Thornton Flood Action Group - Lancashire
On behalf of our Flood Group I would like to thank you and your colleagues from Newground for your attendance and support at our recent drop in sessions held at Thornton Library.
Both events were well attended by local residents and whilst our group could provide local knowledge about Thornton, Newground were able to provide expertise in all aspects related to flooding and in particular information regarding making the home more resilient to flooding. The information sheets you gave out had a wealth of useful facts and I believe that over 400 sheets were handed out over the two sessions.
You were kept very busy throughout both sessions and I know there were at least 37 residents with a range of flooding issues who you were able to assist.
It was helpful that you were able to direct residents to the Flood Re information particularly regarding house insurance and stressing the importance of being prepared for flooding to limit the amount of damage and distress caused by these awful events.
May I also say that having Newground available for ongoing advice and support is really reassuring.
I have no doubt that we shall be working closely with yourselves in the future as it certainly appears that these terrible storm events are happening on a more frequent basis.
Once again many thanks for your support.
Thornton Flood Action Group.
