Storm Babet hits Garve & DistrictPost in Community Care by Tina Hartley
Once again, Garve volunteers rallied following Storm Babet.
Garve and the surrounding area were on alert as the Blackwater River began to rise and roads began to flood as Storm Babet took its toll on most of the UK. In the midst of it there wasn't much anyone could do except wait it out and hope for the best.
Sunday, we finally saw some blue sky and the rain stopped which allowed Garve community volunteers the opportunity to assess any damage within the village itself. Inevitably trees had blown down and the usual Garve crew were up and about clearing the riverside path that locals use, especially children walking to primary school. Fallen trees, which covered the path, were chopped, and moved away.
Thanks again to Garve locals who never hesitate to get involved when their village and surrounding area needs it - true community spirit!
