Another information drop-in session for residents affected by last year's floods in Hollywood is being held next month.

The session, which will take place on Wednesday 6th March, will be at Hollywood Golf Club between 3pm and 6pm.

Residents are welcome to drop-in to find out how the recommendations in the flooding investigation report are being implemented and get advice if they still have any insurance or home repair problems.

Councillor Tony Miller, Cabinet Member with Responsibility for the Environment at Worcestershire County Council, said: "The effects of the Hollywood floods are still being felt by residents even now and it's important that we work with them in any way we can to help them recover and look to the future."

There will be representatives from Worcestershire County Council, North Worcestershire Water Management, Severn Trent Water and the National Flood Forum.

In May, Hollywood and the parts of the wider Wythall area were hit by localised flooding after an unprecedented rain storm that saw 130mm of rain fall in two hours.
 
The flood event had a devastating impact on local residents, businesses and infrastructure. More than 300 properties were affected and many residents needed to evacuate their homes. It is estimated that the flood event will end up costing in excess of £15m.
