Town Hall Flood Recovery Meeting
The Hebden Bridge Flood Recovery Public Meeting organised by the Hebden Bridge Partnership took place on Saturday 16th January and packed out the Waterfront Hall.
Among the issues discussed was insurance. Households may look forward to benefitting from the Flood Re scheme to be introduced in April. Businesses will not and a campaign to include businesses in the scheme needs support.
Community insurance is being explored as an option by the Hebden Bridge Partnership.
