Endon Flood Action Group team up with partners to tackle flooding

Group is turning the tide on floods:

Villagers have teamed up with community leaders in a bid to help prevent their village being flooded.

Endon Flood Action Group, Staffordshire County Council and Severn Trent Water are working together to try to solve the flooding problems in the village.

Action group chairman Henry Jebb said: “We are looking at all areas as we need to identify where there are issues and we will be discussing the options through the action group.
