Advice on what to do both in and after a flood
We have a number of advice leaflets on what to do on a number of safety issues, to do with flooding, these can be collected from the Parish Office.
There is also a new leaflet provided by the Environment Agency on what to do before, during and after a flood available from the Parish Office and online.

Leaflet on Flooding
In Summary
  • Never ever risk your life or the life of someone else trying to save you, a property, or a pet.
  • Try to keep calm at all times and listen to what the flood warders say.
  • Never wade barefoot in flood water. Contaminated water can result in serious illness
  • Use a stick and walk slowly through any flood water to ensure you are aware of any holes, ditches, kerbs or other such hazards.
  • Keep out of standing water as much as you can. Keep children from playing in flood water as there are health risks. When you come into contact with it wash your hands carefully.
  • Keep dogs out of flood waters. Contaminated water will soak through into their fur.
