The Member of the Senedd for the Vale of Glamorgan, Jane Hutt MS, has been visiting and supporting members of the community in Dinas Powys and Sully who suffered the highest impact from the flooding just before Christmas.
The whole of Vale was struck by severe flooding on the 23rd of December, after a sustained period of heavy rainfall hit the County. Roads were left impassable in areas such as Lavernock and Llantwit Major but the villages of Dinas Powys and Sully bearing the brunt of the flood damage, with multiple cases of water making its way into homes, businesses and other buildings.
"I have been out visiting and making contact with affected households and businesses in Dinas Powys and Sully Moors. I have liaised daily with constituents, NRW, Vale Council and Welsh Government for support, updates and called for a review of the flood events which have been devastating for so many including St Richard Gwyn School.
"I would like to thank Dinas Powys Community Council for organising a special meeting on New Year's Day and to all those who have contributed to a fundraising campaign. I will be holding an open zoom session on Friday evening for Dinas Powys residents. For further information contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 0300 200 7110."
For some, clear-up sessions have continued into the new year with the Dinas Powys Voluntary Concern group updating their supporters recently on the progress they had made with their initial clean, after having their office flooded in the freak weather event.
