The Community Resilience team is asking residents of Congresbury to help keep clear gutters and kerbs outside and around their properties.
This will help the flow of rain water to drains in heavy storms and manage the risk of flooding. Unfortunately North Somerset Council cuts have meant that this is a job that is no longer a priority, but it is essential for Congresbury as we live on a flood plain.
Volunteers from Community Resilience North Somerset flood team (who are all residents of Congresbury) carry out quarterly checks on the gullies in all the roads in Congresbury. Our volunteers clear what they can and we report to North Somerset Council any blocked or damaged drains/gullies. If you would like to volunteer for the team or find out more please take a look https://communityresilience-ns.org.uk/join-us-now/ or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
