An anonymous donor has provided £10,000 to the Dinas Powys flood appeal taking the total to over £30,000.

This comes days after the Welsh Government announced it will be providing between £500 and £1000 to each house affected by the flooding.

Chairman of the Dinas Powys Community Council Richard Grigg was thankful for the latest donation but believes there is still work to be done.

He said: “We are very grateful for all the donations we’ve had from charitable organisations but also from members of the public and other organisations within the village that have all contributed to the fund.

“Thirty thousand pounds is a drop in the ocean. It’s a significant sum but a lot of people have been affected. The losses those people have had, you could have just one person with that amount of damage.

“We’d still be grateful for further donations if anyone is able to do so.”

The flooding occurred on the 23rd December after a period of heavy rainfall caused the river Cadoxton to burst its banks.

Over 100 households were affected by the floods and Councillor Grigg hopes such an incident will not happen again.

He said: “We are waiting for an independent report into what caused the flooding to be as devastating as it was.

“It’s a very unusual situation. We know that there was a very high rainfall but we haven’t had a flood like that in anybody’s lifetime.

“We’re waiting for the report before we can see what further action needs to be taken but lessons need to be learnt and we need to make sure this doesn’t happen again.”

Councillor Grigg added that houses affected by the flooding will be sent an application form with information on claiming money from the fund.
