Dear Team, Our shop flooded on Saturday due to careless workman that have been working on fox lane last week.

The trees and bushes have been cut and the waste has been disposed of In the ditch which has consequently stopped the flow and the drain from being affective this caused the road to flood which came over our forecourt brow and into the showroom causing significant damage.

The fire brigade attended and were very helpful in stopping the flow from the road, One of the crew called the council for sand bags and was told there would be a 2 hour response time, surprisingly these never arrived…

I have seen the weather forecast over the coming week and if this is left like it is we will be in the same situation, as a matter of urgency we need the ditch cleared as soon as possible, I also need the sand bags today. I would like a call please from the person who will be responsible for this situation, my numbers are below we can then discuss an insurance claim.

To be clear we have never flooded until now…
