We got flooded :(

As you may be aware on Saturday 8th February the Calder valley was hit quite badly by flooding and unfortunately this time the All Ability Cycling Centre did not manage to escape the onslaught of water.  Considering the severity of the flooding further up the valley in Hebden Bridge and Mythelmroyd we count ourselves quite lucky that we only have about an inch or two of water in the centre as some properties were many feet under and much worse off!

The flood defences at the front of the building did hold but unfortunately the water found a way in further down the building and made its way right through into the workshop.

Here is a catalogue of the water damage and out clean up efforts.

Thanks to everyone who helped us brush and mop out the water and silt.
