Home owners and businesses in Cornwall are being asked to ‘Get Flood Ready’ as part of a campaign aimed at making the county more flood resilient.
The Get Flood Ready campaign, launched by the Cornwall Community Flood Forum, has kicked off with a video encouraging anyone affected by flooding last winter to apply to the Cornwall Flood Fund.
Community Flood resilience manager, Martyn Alvey, said: “Last year’s weather related floods were devastating for so many homes and businesses.
“The Cornwall Flood Fund is a pot of money available to Cornwall but time is running out to claim, with the deadline of Monday November 30 looming.
“We hope that by putting the message out through social media and Youtube we can assist more people throughout the county to become more flood resilient for the future.”
The Cornwall Flood Fund is only available to properties in Cornwall that suffered internal flooding between December 1, 2013 and March 31, 2014 and must be used to improve flood defences.
