A Flood Alert has been issued by the Environment Agency.

 

Flood Alert in force: Groundwater flooding in East Kent. 

Flooding is possible for: Areas at risk from Groundwater flooding including the Petham Bourne, Alkham bourne and Nailbourne including Elham, Barham, Bishopsbourne, Bridge, Patrixbourne and Bekesbourne.    

 

Be prepared.

Groundwater levels in East Kent have been rising throughout the winter following higher than average rainfall. Since mid-February, levels increased rapidly in response to rainfall received during Storms Ciara, Dennis and heavy rainfall on the 5th March. Properties in and around the Nailbourne Valley, Alkham and Petham may soon experience flooding from groundwater. However, due to the nature of groundwater flooding, other properties across East Kent may also experience flooding. Further rainfall could cause groundwater levels to rise further increasing the flood risk. The Environment Agency is monitoring the situation and will update this message by Tuesday 17th March, or sooner if the situation changes. 



To check the latest information for your area
-------------------------------------------------------

* Visit the GOV.UK website to see the current flood warnings, view river and sea levels or check the 5-day flood risk forecast: https://flood-warning-information.service.gov.uk/target-area/064FAG99Eastkent

* Or call Floodline on 0345 988 1188 using quickdial code: 217000 .

* Follow @EnvAgency and #floodaware on Twitter.

* Tune into weather, news and travel bulletins on local television and radio.


What you should consider doing now
---------------------------------------------

* Monitor local water levels and weather conditions.  

* Get ready to act on your flood plan if you have one.

* Move your car or other vehicles to higher ground, if it is safe to do so.

* Prepare a flood kit of essential items including a torch with spare batteries, mobile phone and charger, warm clothes, home insurance documents, water, food, first aid kit and any prescription medicines or baby care items you may need.

* Check that you know how to turn off your gas, electricity and water mains supplies.

* In rural locations, farmers should consider moving livestock and equipment away from areas likely to flood.

* Avoid walking, cycling or driving through flood water. 30 cm of fast-flowing water can move a car and 6 inches can knock an adult off their feet.

* Flood water is dangerous and may be polluted. Wash your hands thoroughly if you've been in contact with it.


 

Canterbury Lifeline

A lifeline alarm, which can be fashionably worn on your wrist or as a pendant is a service provided in East Kent by Canterbury City Council's CCTV control room, 24 hours a day and 365 days a year. Having a lifeline alarm would help you or a family member feel safe and independent in the home.

Dog Fouling

Dog Fouling seems to be on the increase in the village. Most dog owners are responsible and clean up after their dogs however there seems to be small minority that just leave it on the pavements and the Recreation ground. This then ends up on shoes and pushchair wheels and is very unpleaesant, never mind a health hazard.

 

 It is very hard to catch people not clearing up after their dog, but if you do see someone you can report them through the City Councils website.
