News Release 25 July 2007

Council’s high priority help for residents at risk of flooding

With the latest predictions from the Environment Agency suggesting that peak flows in the River Thames are expected to reach the Royal Borough in the early hours of tomorrow morning (Thursday), the council is continuing its high-priority preparations to assist residents in flood risk areas.

At a meeting with the Environment Agency this morning (Wednesday) the council was advised that the expected flooding in the borough is still predicted be less than the 2003 levels.

Peak flow times in the River Thames are currently estimated as follows:

· Hurley after midnight

· Cookham early hours of the morning (Thursday)

· Wraysbury lunchtime Thursday.

However, water levels are not expected to rise as high as first predicted – and although rain is expected for both Thursday and Friday, the Met Office advice is that less than a centimetre is forecast for each day, which will not affect the river levels.

Teams from the streetcare and social care services are out and about again today (Wednesday) in the Cookham, Bisham and Hurley areas in the north of the borough and the Datchet, Horton and Wraysbury areas in the south. They are distributing leaflets with the latest information the council has received from the Environment Agency and checking that people whose homes are most at risk of flooding have a supply of sandbags to help them protect their property.

Teams will also be in the affected areas overnight and residents who have questions or concerns are asked to look out for council staff in their distinctive high visibility jackets.

The customer service centre is staying open until 8pm this evening to take calls and will re-open at 6am tomorrow morning. However, residents have 24-hour access to council help and advice via the out-of-hours number on 01753 853517. Residents are also being advised to check for the latest news on the Environment Agency’s Floodline 0845 988 1188 or its website www.environment-agency.gov.uk

The council continues to have sandbags available on a priority basis to help protect homes most at risk of flooding – and will assist vulnerable and older residents who are unable take the necessary precautions themselves. Residents are being asked to look out for their elderly or vulnerable neighbours and for any neighbours who are on holiday.

David Perkins, head of streetcare and operations, said: “We have been working closely with the Environment Agency and the police to ensure that we have measures in place to help our residents protect their homes from the expected flooding. And, while we hope they won’t be needed, we have plans in place for rest centres in both Windsor and Maidenhead should people unexpectedly need to move out of their properties.

“We have made sure that a regular flow of information sheets, hand delivered to the areas most at risk, have given people the most up-to-date information available to us and the numbers to call for help and advice.

“However, if there are still residents in the high risk areas who have not received sandbags they should call us immediately so we can get supplies to them as a matter of urgency.”

Residents who need assistance from the Royal Borough should call the customer service centre on 01628 683804 (open until 8pm this evening and re-opening at 6am tomorrow) or the out-of-hours emergency number 01753 853517.

Wraysbury Primary School Fair Saturday 14th July 2007

Wraysbury Primary School Fair Saturday 14th July 2007

 


Wraysbury Fair 16th June 2007

Wraysbury Village Green, 2pm

This years fair promises to be another fun filled afternoon for all the family, the committee are working harder than ever to ensure that the fair has the right mix of entertainment for young and old alike and with this in mind for the first time the fair will have a theme, THE WILD WEST.

The fair will open once again with the parade through the village, although this year will see a change to the usual show, as for the first year there will be a walking parade. We hope this will encourage more of the village groups & organisations to take part. We have seen a decline in the number of entries over the years as decorating the lorries takes time and is heavily reliant on lots of volunteers, most of whom are already involved in the fair in other ways. 

Confirmed entertainment so far are Ferrett Racing & a Rodeo Bull, & DJ's from Radio Wexham will be there for the afternoon keeping us entertained over the sound system, other favourites from previous years will also be back, the classic car show, which is one of the biggest showing of classic cars at one event in the South of England, entertainment for the children will be on hand with rides on the model train and a variety of games with plenty of prizes to be won. and we hope to welcome back the Wraysbury Players who will be entertaining us all with a wild west show.

The 1st Wraysbury Scout Group will once again ensure that all visitors are well fed, with the burger stand & the very popular pig roast and refreshements will be available from the cricket pavillion. 

We are all keeping our fingers crossed for a hat trick with the weather, and that this year the sun will shine and the rain stay away as it has done for the previous two years.
