Cllr Sarah Dyke, Lead Member for Environment and Climate Change, said:” I encourage any households or business to come along and share their experiences with us, as well as raising any concerns.

“Our aim is to better understand the issues from the communities affected so that we can investigate possible protective and preventative measures to support extreme weather resilience in Somerset.

“Your feedback is vitally important as it will help improve support to others impacted by flooding. We look forward to seeing you.”
