Proud of Monmouthshire
After a very difficult and testing week for the people of Monmouthshire, it is so reassuring to see that a massive community spirit still exists. All our thoughts are with those who suffered in anyway during the adverse weather conditions of the last week, from those who have suffered minor damage to those whose lives have been turned upside down and suffered massive loss.
It goes without saying that we have some fantastic teams of people who been working selflessly through very testing and dangerous times to ensure the safety of our residents and restore service, provision or access as quickly as possible.
We must all praise the fantastic crews of council and emergency services personnel who have somehow managed to be in all corners of our communities tackling multiple call outs.
A big shout out to all those individuals who have offered up their assistance or services to help those who have had flood or storm damage and will continue over the coming weeks to help rebuild our county.
Of course, as ever, there are those who were inconvenienced by a road closure and placed themselves and others in danger by moving cones and closed road signs. Those who needed to be in dangerous places to grab a social media picture and there were also those who sat in the warm and dry and moaned that things weren’t being done quickly enough. Luckily those people were in the minority.
We must be proud that we have a community who can pull together and have positive impact in times of difficulty. We must salute the residents, workers of Monmouthshire and those outside the county too who have come together during these trying weather conditions.
