Commenting at today’s Calderdale Flood Recovery and Resilience Programme Board, Cllr Tim Swift, Chair of the Board and Leader of Calderdale Council, reiterated the Council’s thanks to everyone who came together to help during the recent water main bursts in Mytholmroyd (5 September) and Luddendenfoot (9 September), which caused parts of the A646 Burnley Road to close whilst repairs took place.
Cllr Tim Swift says:
“Once again, we saw amazing examples of the whole community pulling together to help each other out. We know how disruptive incidents like these can be for local people, so we must pay tribute to the real partnership approach to deal with the impacts.
“Our Vision for Calderdale in 2024 is a place that stands out for its kindness and resilience. The recent water main bursts, as well as previous incidents like flooding, are shining examples of our communities’ ability to recover from setbacks and care for each other.
“We’d like to thank the flood wardens, community wardens and all the local people involved for the fantastic support they gave to Yorkshire Water, the emergency services, the Council, other organisations and each other after the water main bursts. They played an important role in helping out, keeping residents informed and distributing water.”
