Tewkesbury Borough Council is continuing to make sandbags available to residents.

Many areas have been affected by flooding in Tewkesbury Borough, particularly in places such as Tewkesbury, Tirley, Sandhurst, Longford and Maisemore.

The council has provided more than 4000 sandbags to help protect residents’ homes, with special pick up locations being set up in Longford, Twigworth and Maisemore, as well as at the council offices in Tewkesbury.

Officers from the council have also been making visits to vulnerable properties in the area to make sure they are appropriately prepared and to advise them that a rest centre, which has been set up as a precautionary measure, is available if needed.
