Partners continuing to work together to help residents and businesses recover from flooding
Partners from a number of organisations are continuing to work well together to coordinate the flood recovery work across Worcestershire.
Intensive clean-up operations, highway repairs and door to door contact with those directly affected are amongst a range of activities taking place as part of the major recovery operation that began as the river water levels dropped earlier this week.
This co-ordinated work will continue and support will be offered to residents and businesses, including farms, affected by the recent severe flooding.
Any businesses affected by flooding which haven't already been in contact for support can register their request for assistance at Worcestershire Business Central at http://www.business-central.co.uk/ over the weekend. Additional staff will be on hand from Monday (9am to 5pm) on the phone-line 0300 123 14 40, and will also respond to email then.
Any residents requiring assistance should call their local district/city council. Further details are available here: Malvern Hills Business
