North Notts BID have been helping the town and businesses affected by the floods that have devastated North Notts.

Our Maintenance Operative has been working in Worksop Town Centre helping the businesses affected by the flood. Over the course of last week and this week he has been helping with clearing drains, guttering and moving the damaged goods out of the business premises.

BID Ambassador Joe has been contacting businesses affected by the flood and communicating with Bassetlaw District Council, keeping the businesses up to date and feeding back information to the local council on what businesses need to be able to recover from the damage caused by the floods.
