From Longridge

We have been over whelmed by the generosity of our community, clubbing together to help us restore our site after the horrendous floods. We are looking forward to seeing our site return to its beautiful former glory and can't wait to see lots of volunteers this weekend helping us achieve this.
Sat 15th - Sun 16th March from 10am - 4pm each day
If you are able to help us "Spring Clean" this weekend we would really appreciate any time you are willing to donate, whether you are able to stay for one hour or one day we have many jobs to keep you busy.

In order to ensure everyone has a suitable job, please let us know which jobs you would like to help complete, all of which can be seen on our website.

We would like to say another massive thank you from the Longridge team for all your help and support during this tough time. We hope you come back to take part in our activities later in the year. Here's to an adventure packed summer!

Might be worthwhile Longridge getting in touch with these people to see if they can get help. I should caveat that it talks about Cornwall specifically, however it is worth asking the question to see if it could apply to Longridge?

North Cornwall MP and Floods Minister Dan Rogerson is urging local clubs and organisations to make the most of a new 5 million fund to help repair and restore sport pitches and facilities damaged by recent floods and storms. The fund is being made available to sports clubs, local councils and other community organisations and can be used for emergency repairs to the likes of damaged pitches, club houses or changing rooms.
The funding has been provided to Sport England from the National Lottery.

Those needing funding to clean up and get up and running quickly can request up to 2,000 of emergency funding which could be awarded within three weeks. Those with more extensive damage which will take longer to repair will be invited to apply to the fund when it opens on 24th March. Organisations that do not qualify for the Flood Relief Fund will be given advice about other sources of funding that could help.
