As someone who used to live in Egham I have been following the news of the recent floods there with interest. When I lived in the area my house was of little or no risk of flooding but 7 years on this appears to have changed. If it hasn’t been flooded I will be very surprised. What comes through again and again from the reports is the lack of help this area has received in favour of more affluent locations. I can only be thankful that I moved before flooding became an issue but it is sad to see an area I came to love suffering so much devastation.
