Floods in Mytholmroyd

On 26th December 2015, Mytholmroyd, along with other areas throughout the Calder Valley suffered from severe flooding. Our Scout HQ was one of the buildings affected, damaging a lot of our equipment; a lot of which is now beyond repair. It will be a long and difficult process getting back up and running again and we thank all of those who have volunteered their time to support the group already. Below are some images captured the day after the flooding occurred.
