Please see message below from Cornwall Community Flood Forum:
It has been an exceptionally wet autumn. September and October were among the wettest on record. The ground is saturated across the country, rivers are full and this means that it will now take less rain to have a significant impact. With the recent wet weather and rain further forecasted in the next few days across Cornwall, we would like to remind you of some important contacts in the event of a flood situation occurring in your community.
Please remember that if you are part of a volunteer flood group and you activate your Community Emergency Plan or Community Flood Plan, phone CFRS Critical Control on 02031622240 when this is activated, or for advice and guidance before, during or after an emergency.
If life is at risk then please call 999.

Please take care on the roads and remember to not attempt to drive through flood water.
Following the traditional Remembrance Day Service at Marhamchurch on Sunday 10th November, Marhamchurch Parish Council held a ceremony to unveil a plaque commemorating the Airship Station at Langford Hill during World War I, kindly donated by The Airfields of Britain Conservation Trust.
The sun was shining, and a great number of people attended the event, including The Mayor of Bude and Stratton Town Council, Bob Willingham and his special guest Simon Sherrard, the Deputy Lord Lieutenant of Cornwall.
Marhamchurch welcomed parishioners of Marhamchurch Parish and those, including their Chairmen, from neighbouring parishes of Poundstock, Kilkhampton, Launcells, Bude and Stratton and Week St Mary along with Mr Nigel Kivell, who lived at Langford Hill, who unveiled the plaque.
The airfield, which saw significant activity in the final months of World War 1, was sited in the wooded area in a field in front of Langford Hill Manor, 2 miles away on the road to Week St Mary. It was set up as an important out-station to work alongside the main Cornish Airfield at Mullion which is now Culdrose. Photographs, maps and more details were displayed inside the Bray.
Thanks to all involved in making the day such a success.

The bench is now in place outside St Marwennes Church in Marhamchurch Village square.
