Watch our movie of the Gloucestershire Floods of 2007
Well it’s been a devastating couple of weeks for us in Gloucestershire. Although not directly affected by the flooding, Explore Gloucestershire were affected by the water situation. The impending fear at losing power across the county at one point could have been catastrophic, but thanks to the hard work of the emergency services we were spared that misery. I am sure everyone would like to join us in thanking them all again for their amazing efforts.
(Our Cheltenham webcam, which is kindly supplied to us by the Gloucestershire Fire & Rescue Service was overwhelmed with users from far and wide, trying to find out the extent of the flooding in Cheltenham. If you'd like to see (hopefully a warm, dry summers day) the view from the webcam Click Here).
Back to normal...
Most of us are now back to normal or at least managing to get flooded houses and businesses back together. We all have our own stories of the Great Gloucestershire Floods of 2007. I personally feel that it brought the local community together. We helped elderly neighbours and chatted to others at our “Billy Bowser”. It made us nicer people.
But we're back and stronger and nicer than ever before and we want visitors to come and explore our county again.
If you have any stories or pictures you would like to share please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org (keeping the file size to below 1mb if possible) and we will put the on our website.
