Boston Borough Council is issuing an urgent appeal for people with cars parked in Edwin Street, Oxford Street and Pulvertoft Lane to move them so that refuse lorries have room to take away flood-damaged items left out for collection.

The borough council has taken over the recovery stage of the flood operation and Municipal Buildings in West Street is now the command centre controlling all personnel involved in the clean-up. Council staff have been working non-stop since the flood hit, with many out on the ground helping where they can.

If you need help or advice please call in - the building is open until 4pm today (Sunday) - or call on 01205 314 200.

Borough council refuse lorries continue to tour the flood zone picking up flood-damaged belongings for disposal and skips are still available around the town for residents to use. Please be sure you have met your obligations regarding future insurance claims before disposing of anything.

Contact the council if you are not sure of the skip locations.

All properties in the flood zone will have had a personal call by the end of today (Sunday). If Recovery Centre staff cannot get an answer they will leave a letter asking residents to contact the council.

It is important that residents make contact as soon as they are able to help the council assess need and help get things back to normal as quickly as it can. Even if you feel you do not need assistance could you please make contact so that everyone in the flood zone and can be accounted forn and to confirm they are safe and well and managing and so that assistance can be offered to those who need it.
