    If you were able to get your motorhome out of the floods and need a safe temp site please let me know I can accommodate several vans. I know we are a long way south but are 600ft above sea level. The site is closed so no charge, just a safe refuge should you need it. Water and WC on site and a portable generator available for everyone to use and keep batteries charged. Temps currently around 15 deg outside so no heating needed
    please note full timers I'm sure will have already sorted themselves and not be affected.

    What a lovely offer.

    We could also take a small van (6m or less) with EHU, water, dumps etc. No shops, pub though. However the forecast isn't great for here after Tuesday.

    If you can't get your MH out, I can offer a cottage for use in Suffolk. It would have to be done with an assured shorthold tenancy but we could cancel after a week, month, three months; whatever you require.

    We won't flood - its just you would need to plan your route to avoid getting stuck. If you get here you will be more than welcome. There is a spare bedroom or you could use Buffy if you can't get your van here but I think most people are more comfortable in their own space :) We are north of the River Tweed and south of the Blackadder. Both have been known to flood badly.

    Just checked with Toots, he and his family are ok but he is unable to get to his van as the access road is flooded. Van is fine, luckily. The next village along has been badly affected with residents evacuated twice. The pics of people being evacuated show smiling faces or stoicism in the face of the second flooding out in two years. Makes me proud of my identity and the generous people on this thread reinforce that. :)

    never meet.

    Would have been inappropriate to like that post, but hoping all is well for you and the van.(y)

    I like the fact you posted not that you are unable to get to the van.
