Have your say

ALMOST £100,000 has been given to people affected by flooding under a government’s grant scheme managed by Winchester City Council.

Of 65 applications received after the severe flooding in January, 39 grants worth around £98,000 have been awarded.

The scheme was promoted widely between April and June, including flood clinics in the worst-affected places and home-visits in Hambledon to people unable to attend clinics.
