Milford Flood – Ian and Cathy thank all who helped
A sincere thank you to everyone for their thoughts and best wishes following the flooding at 1 The Bridge. Many people have dropped by with offers of help and this is greatly appreciated. Severn Trent have been fantastic and are in to the process of cleaning up. It will probably be a couple of months until we are right but we will be at home. Flowers still available through Cathy!
Very best regards, Ian and Cathy
