Update 2nd Jan 2014: The River Wey has burst it’s banks again causing more flooding in Godlaming. We are keeping an eye on the situation… Here.

A large multi agency operation was launched in Godalming due the the river Wey bursting it’s banks on Christmas Eve. Some homes were believed to be under 3ft water.

Much of Godalming also suffered power failures through Christmas Eve until around 9pm on Christmas day. For some there were periods where the power came back, but for most, period with powers were short lived.

After many hours of flooding and power failures people in Godalming began to celebrate Christmas  when power came back late on Christmas day…
