A letter from Margaret Briggs, Chair of Woodborough Emergency Planning Committee and Woodborough Parish Councillor

15th November 2019

I would like to thank all the volunteer flood wardens who were out yesterday in very difficult circumstances. Particular thanks go to Sue Walker who co ordinated us so well.

Also many thanks go out to the residents who helped their friends and neighbours protect their properties. Our sympathies go out to the people in the village who were unable to keep the water from their houses.

Thanks to the staff at Woodborough School and Playgroup for taking care of the children until their parents were able to get into the village to pick them up.

We flood wardens were very grateful for the cups of tea and coffee offered and brought to us whilst we were manning our posts. Thank you.

We will be having a debrief meeting. If anyone has any comments please let me know.

If anyone would be interested in becoming a flood warden please get in touch with me. My email is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
