Nottinghamshire residents and businesses urged to remain vigilant following floods

Nottinghamshire residents are being urged to remain vigilant as our communities continue to recover from the extensive flooding and disruption caused by Storm Babet.

A major incident was declared in the county at the weekend following the heavy rainfall, which caused rivers and streams to burst their banks – leaving many homes and businesses under water.

The severe weather presented the Nottinghamshire Local Resilience Forum (LRF) – a multi-agency partnership made up of local authorities and emergency services – with complex and challenging situations to tackle and overcome.

Have your say on Nottinghamshire Family Hubs

People are being asked for their views on plans to change the future use of Nottinghamshire’s children’s centre  buildings to Family Hubs. These hubs would provide a variety of help and support to families across Nottinghamshire.

Family Hubs will provide joined up services to help families support their children from conception through to late adolescence.

Councillor Tracey Taylor, Cabinet Member for Children and Families at Nottinghamshire County Council, said: “We want families in Nottinghamshire to have the support they need when they need it. Family Hubs are about making sure that families can easily access advice, help and support.
