Xmas 2013 Flood and Damage Photos

“I was there from 7am on Christmas Eve. Our chairman came in early and asked half a dozen members to go in and start getting the water out. As the day progressed it got worse.  Water started seeping into the ditch which surrounds the bowls green and pumps were used to get rid of as much water as possible.
Then, at about 3pm, it came up so quickly into the bowls hall. I just managed to get my car out in time.  The whole area and the Sainsbury’s car park were completely flooded.  I was probably the last one to drive a car along that road. The road remained impassable on Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
I and other members saw the devastation on Friday, December 27.
The water had reached up to the windows in the restaurant and three feet high in the bowls hall. Everything was totally ruined.”
