The flood waters may have gone from five years ago but for many the mental scars have remained.
Eileen - who now needs constant oxygen for a lung disease - had pneumonia three times when she lived in a freezing caravan while her flooded house was rebuilt.
Another family - the Heaths also had to move into a caravan.
Five years on and Mr Heath still has terrible memories of that time.
After the deluge of 2007, Tewkesbury's water treatment works was knocked out.
There was no tap water for days. Now a protective wall has been built around the works.
And they're confident here that it can withstand pretty much anything.
However people in the town are still made nervous by the recent weather.
But despite it all there's been no repeat of the floods of five years ago.
And the Rev Canon Paul Williams, the vicar of Tewkesbury Abbey, which had been surrounded by water has a message of hope.
