Storm Dennis Update

Storm Dennis Update


Work is continuing with residents affected by flooding in both Llanhilleth & Cwm following #StormDennis
We are back out re-assessing the needs of individual households so that we can offer support including advice on cleaning, and organise the delivery of donated furniture. Thanks to the Red Cross volunteers who are helping out with this today. We are also checking that people have applied for the emergency payment available to flood victims in Wales, and organising Care & Repair support for those eligible.
We have been overwhelmed by the many kind donations from members of the community & businesses. We now have a sufficient stock of food products, but if you would still like to donate we would gladly welcome donations of pet products including food, bedding and cat litter; mops & buckets; bin bags & air fresheners. These can be dropped off at Llanhilleth Institute @LlanStute, or Cwm Flying Start Hub where people affected by the floods can still drop in for assistance from the Council.
