We do not provide sand bags

Sand bags are not fully effective and are not the best form of flood protection.

The Environment Agency (EA) recommends that more permanent measures are put into place in areas susceptible to flooding, such as flood boards. Please see the EA leaflet 'Preparing for a Flood' for further advice and guidance to householders.

Sand bags and other flooding protection equipment is available on line from many national stockist and at most good hardware/builders merchants locally. These will usually be supplied empty and will require an addition purchase of the sand.
