On Friday 20th July 2007 it rained in Cheltenham. It was expected, we’d all seen the forecasts and listened to the warnings, but this day was to be different. Our streets became rivers, our roads closed and our public buildings became refuges for the trapped.
We started this blog on the following Monday and your response was wonderful. Thank you for all the supportive comments during the emergency.
We will no longer be posting to this blog and will be leaving it as an archive of those few days in the Summer of 2007 when Gloucestershire become the focus of the world’s attention.
