When heavy rain has been forecast and there is a risk of flooding in the town it is possible for people have sandbags to help protect their homes and businesses. These sandbags are available from Stanhope Hall and they are not available for garages, sheds, drives, gardens etc.
Please only take bags if there is a probability of your property flooding.
If people are unable to collect bags themselves (those that are elderly or disabled) then deliveries may be possible. Please contact the Town Hall office (during office hours) on 01507 522957
If you would like empty bags to fill yourself then these are available from the Swimming pool and Stanhope Hall
