Thank you Janet, for publishing these important photos. They are a stunning reminder of the scenes facing so many of our Canvey residents in the days following that dreadful flood. My job at that time took me into many homes that were left in these conditions. The clean-up was a horrendous task for all involved. I will think about those days,weeks and months after the flood and remember the challenges that Canvey Islanders dealt with. As the anniversary comes and passes we must remember all who were lost and pay tribute to all Islanders of that period

A page will be published shortly following the unveiling of the flood plaque at Jotmans Cemetery. Lovely service and reception afterwards. As soon as I get the pictures I will put them on.
