Flood Emergencies

Key Contacts for Flooding Emergencies

Key reminders

  1. During a flood event RBC will prioritise the delivery of sandbags to those most vulnerable and at risk of immediate internal flooding of habitable rooms (not garages or gardens)
  2. Please use the RBC contact details below so that your call can be correctly logged and information shared with our teams.
  3. RBC do not deliver sandbags to commercial businesses
  4. Be aware that during a flood event the road network may flood which can mean access and the delivery of sandbags to homes may not be possible therefore being prepared in advance is vital
  5. Check if you have a local flood resilience store in your area operated by local Town and Parish Councils as you may be able to obtain sandbags during an event from this location
  6. Finally please be prepared – if you’re at risk of flooding it’s vital to take steps to protect your home by fitting flood protection measures and keeping your own stock of sandbags

The Charities may be able to help students with a grant towards the costs of books or other course materials.

Young persons under the age of 25 years living in the parishes of Bunny, Bradmore or Costock undertaking a course of higher education are eligible for a one-off grant. The scheme is not limited to new students and those already on a course who have not previously applied for a grant may be eligible also. If you feel that you meet the criteria or have sons or daughters who meet those criteria, they may apply in writing to the clerk to the trustees at the address below providing evidence of acceptance onto their chosen course. Applications will be considered by the trustees at the next quarterly meeting following their receipt. The next meeting is scheduled for 7th September 2022. Applications may be made after that date.

Supporting Voluntary groups

We are the Voluntary Sector Development Team, and we would like to introduce ourselves to you, to let you know that we are here to support you and the voluntary sector organisations, groups, or clubs that work with children and young people in Nottinghamshire.

We would like to reach as many play/youth settings across the county as possible, following the covid pandemic many play/youth settings are just going back to normal, we can support groups by developing committees, reviewing policies, and finding out about funding opportunities.

We are hoping you could promote our service through your local networks and together we can increase opportunities for local children and young people.

Please see the link below that provides further details on how we can support the voluntary sector.

The Voluntary Sector Development Team can work with groups to:

  • Develop existing organisations/groups
  • Identify the legal requirements that are compulsory for voluntary sector groups/organisations g. policies and training
  • Help with the recruitment of Volunteers /Committee Members
  • Identifying funding and support you with your applications
  • Signpost you to training
  • Help apply for DBS clearance for volunteers and paid staff

Please find attached a leaflet about our service and what it can offer groups. We would be most grateful if you can share the information attached with colleagues, groups, and others who may find it useful.
