The recent flooding in villages close to our Iver depot such as Datchet and Wraysbury was so serious that it has been regularly reported on the national news. It created terrible disruption for the community but also brought people together to help each other in a remarkable way
Iver’s Jubilee Pavilion became a supply centre for the flood relief exercise, with all sorts of donated goods from food to disinfectant coming in from local businesses and retailers to help flood victims. Relay lent a Mercedes Sprinter 3.5 tonne Luton van to help in the distribution exercise which proved ideal for the task.
One of the main areas involved in the relief effort was the mobile home park at Trenches Farm, west of Iver. The 250 dwellings include a large number of elderly and vulnerable residents so assistance was vital.
South Bucks District Councillor Paul Griffin said that private individuals and businesses like Relay had contributed to a fantastic local effort. “I have known Relay for over 20 years and the company has always shown itself to be a very genuine community player and ready to help out locally. Their practical support in our transport operation was just what was needed.”
