Have your say

A little victory for a small business left devastated by the floods that submerged parts of Leeds at Christmas.

Leeds joiner’s Chippendale Projects is getting back on its feet after receiving a grant from the Leeds City Region Business Recovery Fund, a fund set up to help small businesses left in dire straits by the overflowing waters of the River Aire.

The recovery fund has received applications totalling £1.3m – with 90 per cent so far being approved. Brilliant news.

Just over three months on, the clean-up and recovery operations continue. Please keep telling us your stories.
