    I really feel for you mate, it must be like living a nightmare.

    I work for Downton's in Gloucester, so have an idea of what its like down there thru speaking to other driver's. Quite a few of ours have been affected by this. I know Downton's are doing anything transport related to do with the floods free of charge.

    keep your spirits up mate.

    Hiya, hope you and your family are all ok and hope the rain on sunday does,nt make things any worse [not that things could get much worse] Glad to here your support for the animals. I agree we should all give what we can no matter how small to help your community and others who have been affected by this flooding, and while i dont mind giving to other countries when they have a crisis, the appeals for our own crisis is just non exsistant. Charity should begin at home! I hope them *****s who peed and put bleach in the water get caught, hope things get better soon and keep us informed on how you are. take care Dawn

    Mate i feel your pain, and i hope you recover from this swiftly.

    One of my customers rang to tell me his house and garage had been flooded and could we pick the car up which had been flooded to roof level. To say it is a state is a understatement, it stinks and cannot be healthy. He'd only just moved in and as you lot have no water, he hadn't showered for days(!)

    I cannot believe what has happened down there and really do wish you well
