A DROP-IN session will be held at Hollywood Golf Club to update residents affected by severe flooding in May.

Representatives from Worcestershire County Council's flood risk team, Severn Trent, the North Worcestershire Water Management Team and the National Flood Forum will be on hand between 1pm and 7pm on Tuesday, October 2 to give advice and gather feedback.

In May, the villages of Hollywood in Wythall were hit by localised flooding after an unprecedented rain storm drowned the area. Around 130mm of rain fell in just two hours, leaving cars submerged and up to 300 homes affected.

Cllr Tony Miller, county cabinet member with responsibility for the environment, said: "The effects of the Hollywood floods are still being felt by residents even now and it's important that we all continue to work with them in any way we can to help them recover and look to the future.

"I'm pleased to say that efforts to clarify what happened in May and to reduce the chance of it happening again in the future are progressing and this session will provide residents with a good opportunity to get involved with the investigation.

"Also The National Flood Forum have been a great support to all involved since May and I'm sure the residents will be pleased that they are coming back to provide further advice."

Residents are welcome to drop in to October's event at any time to find out how the investigation into the flooding is progressing and get advice on any insurance problems.
