Water distribution continues

Full details about water availability are on our emergency water supplies page. Water bowser refills are continuing throughout the weekend with the Army assisting Severn Trent. The council bottled water distribution centres are in full swing.

Thanks to everyone in our community for their continued support.

    I would like to add my sincere thanks and praise to all Authorities who are providing help and assistance to us, the citizens of Gloucestershire.

    As a resident of “tap waterless” Cheltenham I appreciate that there are others who are far worse off than me and can only hope that their lives return to normal as quickly as possible.

    During these unpleasant, even catastrophic in places, times I believe we in Cheltenham have been well served by our Borough Council and its supporting Volunteers. Service from the Emergency Services, Commercial service providers and Severn Trent, despite the early ‘hiccups’ with the bowsers has also been praiseworthy and most welcome. My grateful thanks to all concerned.

    It was also pleasing to hear Dr. Tim Brain on BBC News 24 at 7 p.m. answering the questions put to him truthfully rather than providing a ‘politicians’ answer. Of course we might not like some of the answers but at least we know what we have to cope with over the next few days or so.

    I live in Bafford Approach, Charlton Kings and the water supply started to trickle through the pipes again about 5.00am this morning. The pressure is quite good and appears to be improving as the day progesses.

    As I understand it this water is NOT suitable for drinking and also needs to be boiled before using to wash dishes, etc.

    Whilst many will be aware of the need to boil the water, many who do not have access to the internet, etc will not. May I suggest that for those areas where the water supply is returning advice is given out by loud speaker vans touring the respective areas. Just a thought.

    I’d like to say thank you to the gentleman shopper at Morrisons on Sunday who gave two boxes of chocolates to the staff handing out water there. It was a great morale booster and we really appreciated it.

    I’ve been helping out at the Homebase site and would like to thank the fantastic bunch of people from Severn Trent and CBC, and especially young Matthew from MAD who has been an absolute star!

    You’ve all done a brilliant job.
