Meeting tonight in Earby Community Centre at 6.00pm to discuss all aspects of the flooding in December 2015.
Please attend as most authorities will be in attendance.
If you, or someone you know, are experiencing problems of any nature, please report these to the agency that are able to deal with your request, using an accepted medium. Please do not post things on Facebook or Twitter and expect those agencies to respond, as these accounts are not monitored. Social Media is just that, Social.
Council has seen several complaints on local Facebook sites about people - described as lazy on one site, which is well stated - not picking up their animals poo, and in particular complaining about the road joining Longroyd and Rostle Top.
Earby Town Council would wish to remind any persons whose property, residence or business, was affected by flood water caused by Storm Eva over the Christmas period is eligible for a £500 one off payment.
Pendle Borough Council state that they are aware of most of the properties involved and payments could be made as early as this coming week.
The Council gives a big well done to Earby as a whole as the residents have shown that the community spirit is alive and well and thriving in the town.
The response has been immense from young, old and in the middle alike and is good to see.
No one could have forecast how bad things were to become but reaction to it all round was great.
After a joint effort by Earby Flood Group and Earby Town Council the sandbag store on Cemetery Road has been replenished.
Anyone in need of sandbags can get them, tomorrow only, by contacting Councillor M Horsfield, who is also a member of the flood group.
Please note he will not be delivering them, you will have to collect them.
Warnings are being issued by Lancashire Police about a seasonal increase in crime, particularly opportunistic (sneaky) ones.
I provide a link for the national site and if you click on Lancashire you can sign up for alerts on all sorts of crime and other Police business.
Earby Town Councillors have been busy today helping Earby Flood Group in its efforts to deal with the critical situation the Town has found itself in. The incessant rain has put many residents and their properties at real risk of flooding hence and, no pun intended, it was all hands to the pumps, or sandbags!
