Preparing for the worst

First published in News

WHEN Ledbury was cut off by floods in July 2007, town councillors sprang into action to help the 600 or so travellers who found themselves trapped overnight.

Emergency accommodation, provisions and blankets could be found at locations including the John Masefield High School and the Ledbury Community Hall.

Seven years on, the town's emergency plan is set for a shake-up.

The town's Emergency Plan working party plans to create a new plan, called the Community Resilience Plan, and this will be adopted after talks with emergency services and local hospitals.
