Following the dreadful weather in recent weeks, there has been flooding in Alkham. Constituents have written to me worried that community assets such as Alkham Village Hall could be at risk. We must do everything that we can to protect homes and property from the flood risk.
I went to Alkham this morning to see the issue for myself. It was great to see the Army doing such great work to protect communities from the floods. It is really positive to know that they have been so quick to respond to the floods and our towns and villages should not hesitate to call for their aid. I discussed the threat of further flooding to Dover and River from the Dour and I am pleased the Army is doing everything it can to stop this happening.
