At the beginning of this year, torrential flooding spread across Berkshire and hit he small towns of Windsor, Datchet and Wraysbury. Many people like Yaron (mentioned above) were severely affected by the adverse weather and were forced to leave their homes in search of temporary apartments. Whilst the weather had huge financial implications there was also the emotional upheavel that many had to go through which often goes unnoticed. As Yaron rightly says the “anxiety” and “unpredictability” of living through the flooding turned many households upside down.
Fortunately, Clarendon were here to help flood victims rebuild their lives. Our Wraysbury Hall serviced apartments were located within close proximity of the flooding but avoided damage due to its elevated position (this is thanks to the ingenuity shown by the Victorians who built Wraysbury Hall in the early 19th century). We offered accommodation to families like the Ivry’s so that they could resume as close to normal everyday life as possible.
Fast forward seven months after the flooding and the Ivry’s are now ready to move into their renovated Wraysbury home. Its great news and a testimony to their sheer determination to get their life back on track as soon as possible. We wish them the best of luck for the future.
As we approach autumn, the unpredictability of British weather starts to become more apparent. And whilst we hope that we don’t see the adverse weather conditions that plagued the country at the beginning of the year, you can rest assured that if the worst is to happen Clarendon will be on hand to help.
