Clean-up begins at Stafford Cricket and Hockey Club after second flood

By Jordan Reynolds | Stafford | Environment | Published:

Work has begun clearing up the mess caused by flood water at Stafford Cricket and Hockey Club.

The club was flooded this week for the second time in four months, and the reopening event scheduled for later this month had to be cancelled.

Work is ongoing to try and remove the damaged items and install the drying equipment, the club said.

Hundreds of pounds was raised in a fundraising appeal for the club and it was set to reopen on February 28.

But now the reopening night has had to be postponed after the brook burst its banks on Sunday night.

The club is set to meet with the Environment Agency to plan a future strategy for flood defences/prevention.
