The Widecombe Sandbag store is in the coach park, behind the Recycling Station. If you require sandbags, please help yourself and ring 01364 621242 so we can monitor their use. The store is not locked but requires a firm pull to open and to shut it properly, you need to kick the bottom. Please return sandbags when the threat of flood has passed.


General advice on how to prepare for a potential flood at your home or in the area can be found here: How You can prepare for a flood
