At last, 15 days later, our water is safe to drink


Are you a local business that suffered with the flood?

The South West of England regional development agency is making available up to £2m as an emergency fund to help support those businesses hit most severely by the floods.

The scheme aims to assist in rapid business recovery by providing assistance for business advice and physical losses as a direct consequence of the recent floods in the South West, principally Gloucestershire.

Did you suffer flooding like this?

Flooding in Cheltenham

We’d like a definitive list of every property affected

The flood waters may have gone, the tap water may be almost back to normal, we’ve all come through the other side. Surprisingly, the one thing we do not have is a definitive list of all the properties affected by the flood. Some had a trickle inside, some were completely gutted, it’s important that we know who was affected. We have a list of all the calls we received for advice and sandbags – but it is not comprehensive.

If your property was damaged, it would be very helpful if you could email us, giving the address of the property, your name, and contact details including a daytime telephone number and forwarding address (if appropriate). We will contact you and arrange to visit you at the flood-damaged property.

What a great idea

The BBC Good Neighbour appeal:

Give your time to be a BBC Good Neighbour. In the aftermath of the flood crisis, we’re inviting Gloucestershire people to donate their skills and time to help victims of the disaster.

Is it safe to drink yet?

Severn Trent have been on the phone and are pleased with the results of the water sampling here in Cheltenham. We understand that they expect to make a statement that our tap water is of drinking quality in the next couple of days.

As always – we’ll keep you posted.
