YOUR VILLAGE NEEDS YOU!

Boy in lifebelt

YOUR VILLAGE NEEDS YOU!


Despite the current ongoing COVID issues, the weather and seasons do not stop for anything! The Bodenham Flood Protection Group, which has been ably and successfully run for a number of years by Babs and Tony Mitcheson, is going to have to go through some big changes in the months to come.

For a number of reasons, we are losing key members of the group, including the Mitchesons, and so are having a recruitment drive! The group has been key, over the last 12 years, in keeping the village as safe as possible from flooding; in fact, if not for the work the group did throughout last year, then the issues with Storms Ciara, Dennis and Jorge in February could have been much worse.

We are a friendly bunch, run as a sub group of the Parish Council. We run working parties at set points in the year clearing drains, gulleys and watercourses and filling and stockpiling sandbags at fortnightly working party sessions between April and October. In ‘normal times’, we hold an annual BBQ, coffee morning and quiz night to raise funds, and are always open to other ideas!

The main thing here is to call out to anyone who thinks they could spend a bit of time either on the committee (we will have a number of roles to be filled in the next few months) or on working parties. Even if your property is not directly at risk from flooding, the group is a good way to join a community effort and an excellent way to meet people as well as keeping fit on the working parties! With Babs and Tony sadly having to move on, we desperately need to invigorate the group - it would be a great shame and a detriment to the village if the group had to close down.
If you would like more information, or better still, can volunteer your time (!), please contact Debby or Adrian House on 01568 797305 or at debbyjhouse@icloud.com. Please, if you think you can help or you would like to know more do get in touch!

Please help us to keep this invaluable group going for the village!
