The flood forum wishes to thank everybody who has come forward to support the cause in so many ways. This has been a community effort not seen in living memory and will result in a lasting legacy for the town.

And an enormous thank you to:

…The more than one hundred volunteers who turned out what ever the weather to clear the watercourses and ditches and the suppliers of cake, coffee and biscuits for the working parties. What a team! The shared fun, aches and pains will continue…

… Members of the Forum who have put in hundreds of hours to analyse the Survey Form responses, examine the causes of flooding, propose mitigation measures, develop a Community Emergency Plan, arrange and attend meeting with agencies and authorities, keep the community informed through the website, newsletters, Library Help Desk, press articles and media interviews and generally ‘keep the Forum boat afloat’!
