Just in case you've missed it - there is a summary news article on the Aldbourne Net that we are using to collate all the updates we receive regarding flooding in Aldbourne:

A slight tangent - but nonetheless an interesting (scientific) response to the media feeding frenzy regarding flooding in the Somerset Levels:

News via DIG:

There will be people from Wiltshire Council in and around the village today, centred on Community Junction. So if you'd like to ask them any questions...

...They'll be the ones in flourescent jackets.

BBC Wiltshire Radio interviewed Sue Rendell from the Post Office and Nick Josephy from DIG on the Ben Prater morning programme today, Tuesday 11th February. You can listen to the interviews via this link. Please note this link will only work for the next seven days. The piece about flooding in Aldbourne begins approximately 1 hour and 46 minutes into the programme (you should be able to scroll forward to this point).

The sandbags have now arrived and are outside the Community Junction. The supply of these bags is very limited and Aldbourne may not get another delivery of them. The Parish Council therefore asks that households limit the number they take to 15. The sandbags are for residents who are already flooded or are in imminent danger of being flooded. They should not be taken 'just in case'. Residents who are not in dire need currently should consider the purchase of their own sandbags.

The current stock of sandbags has nearly all gone unfortunately. However, the Parish Council has managed to arrange with Wiltshire Council to have some more delivered to the village ASAP

Aldbourne Community Emergency Plan

The severe weather warnings for the next few days may make the flood situation in the village even more serious / dangerous. The Community Emergency Response Team is monitoring the situation and is ready to implement the Emergency Plan if it becomes necessary to evacuate large numbers of people or if the Emergency Services request our support in some other way.

Please note: the Emergency Plan is not an alternative to the emergency services. If there is an emergency you should always dial 999.

We are very aware of the many, many people in the village who keep an eye on their vulnerable neighbours and help out when needed. This has been especially noticeable during the current flooding and is one of the things that make Aldbourne so special. Please carry on - we do not in any way wish to replace this.

Please keep checking here for further updates.

We're hearing news, both here on the forum and elsewhere, that Wiltshire Council Highways will shortly be closing Lottage Road, except to residents. As soon as we have confirmation we will publish it here.

Thanks Trish. If anyone has any further details about the closure, or information about changes to school coach pickups/drop-offs and other bus services, please post here or email us at: .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). Thank you!

For those children who usually catch the school bus in Lottage Road the latest advice is that they should now wait for their bus in the Square.

Which is kind of strange really, because THIS http://www.wiltshire.gov.uk/communityandliving/civilemergencies/emergencynotices.htm#80 is what appears on the Wiltshire Council website. Apparently The Square is CLOSED but Lottage Road remains open, but affected by flooding???

Lottage road AND the Square now being shown as closed due to flooding on the Wiltshire Council website.

If anybody is suffering hardship or major problems due to the flooding which are not being addressed do not forget to let the Parish Council know. They are poised ready to help anyone although they appreciate that Aldbourne residents always rally round. The Library will be open this afternoon and evening and Community Junction is contactable if anyone wants to come in and get help/seek information.

There are road closed signs at both ends of Lottage Road now, though nothing similar up by the Square (where the water level has fallen a little from the last 48 hours).
