Yesterday evening a band of volunteers met at our town hall in Bradford on Avon with the hall management team to practice putting up the flood barriers. They have a metal slotted barrier system which need cleaning and the rubber joints lubricating before we erect them. It was very useful to find out how they work on a warm July evening rather than a cold wet winters night with the river rising!
