NB Extracted from a longer article about experiences
of residents of Helmdon and neighbouring villages.
Sally Phillips, Helmdon resident and landlady of the village's
Bell pub, said "We had our cellar flooded. There was
rather a lot of water in Station Road and where the Green
is. We have got a bench there and the water came up to the
level of the seat.
Her home was also affected along with about four others, despite
sandbags being put outside.
She said the pub needed a new cooler and her hall carpet at
home needed replacing.
