Norman Robinson, Environment Agency Area Manager, said: “We know this remains a difficult time for those affected by the flooding, as they return home and start to recover – and that’s why we want to be on-hand along with our partners to offer support.

“Our flood experts will be at Coronation Hall during the day so come and speak to us; we’re happy to answer your questions and give advice.”

Assistant Director (People) at East Lindsey District Council, Michelle Howard, said: “We are committed to supporting the local community to recover and get back to normal.
