There is still much to be done to recover from the floods in December 2015. The main way you can help our community to recover is to come and visit us. Enjoy the breathtaking scenery and many exciting activities, stay in one of the wonderful Hotels, B&Bs and cottages, shop in our local shops, and eat, drink and be merry in one of the many cafes, restaurants and pubs.
The Patterdale Parish Flood Management Group was set up in response to the floods of December 2015 which had a devastating impact across the areas of Glenridding, Patterdale, Hartsop and Deepdale.
The aim of the group is to ensure that our Dale does not suffer again in the same way the terrible impact of those floods. We are developing a comprehensive flood plan in partnership with all the relevant agencies to ensure we have identified what happened this time, why, and what can be done to minimise the risk of it happening again. We are also developing a comprehensive emergency response and resilience plan. We are very grateful to all our supporters, especially the Cumbria Community Foundation and the Princes Countryside Fund.
24 hours of heavy rain in August 2016, again in November 2017, and Storm Callum in October 2018 showed us how much work we still have to do and we are still very busy clearing, sorting and most of all maintaining.
3 years on and we’ve achieved plenty, but still have much to do!
