Charity Group Begin Clean-up Operation In Floodstricken Community Centre


The Dinas Powys Voluntary Concern group has taken to social media to share pictures of the progress made on the clean-up operation at their Murchfield Community Centre base.

Dinas Powys was one of the areas in the Vale hit particularly hard by the recent bout of flooding after a period of intense rainfall just days before Christmas. The main road through the town, Cardiff Road, was left impassable and some buildings, including the Murchfield Community Centre, were flooded.

Dinas Powys Voluntary Concern, a group that offer services such as shopping and prescription collection to those in need, as well as weekly telephone calls and lifts to the medical centre, have their office base at the Community Centre.

The group, with the help of some volunteers and those who work at the Community Centre, have now been able to begin the clean-up, clearing the water from the building and making the electrics safe. Work will now begin to re-establish phone and internet connections for the charity's office, which will now reopen on Monday 4th January.

In a statement on their Facebook account, Dinas Powys Voluntary Concern said:


"Thank for all the offers of help, we may be in touch! It looks like we'll have a lot to do in the new year as the office will have to be completely cleared. Have a happy Christmas everyone and thank you to all of our volunteers for everything they've done and continue to do in the community."
