The volunteer centre has been at the heart of the town’s efforts to overcome the extreme effects of the floods. More than two hundred volunteers and staff members worked together to deliver bottled water to vulnerable people. They also provided transport for those people needing medical assistance. The support was provided day and night and is still continuing.
With lots of enquiries coming in about our flood damaged leisure facilities we’re trying to pull together information and give a formal announcement about where we are right now.
At the moment we’re trying to get the running track and a few facilities that support it open, perhaps in a couple of weeks time. The rest of the centre was very badly damaged and will take a long time to recover. The video below shows the moment the machine room flooded. This is the room that houses all the pumps and filters that support the swimming pool, it finished up under twenty five feet of water.
The video below shows the same machine room being pumped out a few days later.
