This morning we went out to clean our streets of rubbish. We also wanted to re-connect with people who we had been in contact with after the floods. It was very sad to see so many houses still empty even though it is now almost five months after they were flooded. Some people are living upstairs and other houses are up for auction.
Although the rest of the country have forgotten, here in Carlisle we are still feeling the effect of the dreadful weather just before Christmas. Fortunately it was lovely sunny morning as we worked and were pleased to make contact with a number of people.
