Flood messages from local businesses

Flood Messages from local businesses:

Jon at Eclipse Cleaning

We are offering free carpet appraisal so you know if your carpet can be cleaned or needs to be replaced. Call us on 01488 670113.

Graham Hill of Verbatim Phone Answering Service

We are offering free support to 20 Berkshire businesses who are experiencing floods. If your office space is flooded or your home is flooded and you can’t get into work then we will answer your phone lines, take messages, process orders, answer FAQs and make bookings. We will be your virtual receptionist until the end of February.

Paul Webster at Floodsure

I am a hydrologist living in Hungerford. I set up Floodsure to provide homeowners with a complete package that includes survey, installation, insurance and maintenance checks.  You can get each of these services from many others – no one to our knowledge is currently offering the complete package that is with insurance cover guaranteed when you have protection measures installed.

Ray at Great Shefford Shop & Post Office

The shop and Post office are still open despite local flooding. Police are making some people walk from the Swan but you can avoid walking through the flood area by walking into Station Road and then walking right up the tarmac track towards the playing fields.The footpath brings people into the Mead and it is a short walk down to the shop.

The road towards Wantage out of the village is not an option.

Please call the shop on 01488 648380 if you have any questions.


We are open too! There is a Police stopping point before you get to G SA but if you tell them that you are going to Great Shefford Auto’s they will let you through. PLEASE PLEASE pass the word. Small business really need your support at the moment as well – thank you so much.

Liam at The Swan Pub, Great Shefford

We are offering free hot drinks and meals to villagers affected by the flood.

Elliot at The Cafe Lambourn

We have a few sandbags outside the back door but otherwise we’re fine – so pop in for a warm cosy refuge from the rain.
