Sun shines as the clear up at Moorland begins……..

The spring sun broke through the early mist as the clean up got under way in Moorland on Saturday 8th March and 20 volunteers from the RRT arrived to help the Environment Agency and Sedgemoor Council start moving sandbags from the properties that had suffered from severe flooding for several weeks.

Devastated properties

Meeting in the car park of the flood damaged Village Hall, the volunteers were split into working groups and assigned to various locations in the Village. At the same time a refreshment tent was set up in the car park to provide food and drinks for all those working in the village and for the residents who had returned to begin the harrowing task of dealing with their devastated homes.

    The devastation was dreadful. Very good work helping these poor residents.
    Hope it never happens again.
    The sunshine must be most welcome for homeowners and helpers alike!

    I take my hat off to you guys in the south west, after all you did during the catastrophic flooding and then back you go to clear up – what a service, three cheers for you all!! it must still be a terrible time for the residents – having lost everything and homes needing a lot of remedial work.
