On Boxing Day morning we received notification to leave our house due to severe flood risk and while the road and our garage were under water, thankfully our home was left unscathed. My heart goes out to all those who have had homes and businesses ruined by flooding, especially artists and small business owners. All in all it has been a very stressful time in my adopted town of Bingley, but it has as made me all the more grateful for what I have. The support of the local community, friends and family is truly astonishing.
I am sending out the old year helping with Bingley Flood Support group and then resting next to the fire. Here's to a calmer, dryer 2016!
