FLOODING crisis: Firstly, a very big thank you to the workers and volunteers for all the hard work they have done. More help could be offered for manning the Ridgeway Centre.

Please contact them on 01256 470665 if you can spare a few hours.

As a resident of Buckskin myself, I was confident that in a time of crisis we would pull together. Hopefully, the past weekend’s experiment is a success and pumping from Buckskin direct can begin.

As this goes to press, there would have been a meeting to set up a financial fund for those who will need cash grants and also for those who wish to make a donation.

Should you need help, contact the council on 01256 844844 and/or go to the Ridgeway Centre where help is on hand.

Another major thank you to all those that have made donations. A mention must be made of the Buckskin Spiritualist Church and its flock for the half-term drop-in it organised and, of course, the staff who manned the decks.
