WHEN the flooding hit Oxfordshire earlier this year, they all did their bit.

And yesterday the efforts of some of our flood heroes were recognised by the Prime Minister David Cameron.

The reception held at No 10 was to thank members of communities up and down the country for battling through the difficult times with true Dunkirk spirit.

While we don’t want to see a repeat of the flooding and the damage and disruption it caused let’s hope the spirit shown by our flood heroes lives on.
