STAFF and volunteers at a crisis-hit activities centre rolled up their sleeves at the weekend to lend a hand at the annual clean-up.

Longridge held its Spring Clean open day on Sunday, with volunteers helping shovel, rake, wash, paint and shift to restore the site to its best after a horrendous period of flooding.

The Marlow-based activity centre was hit hard by the worst floods in the town for a generation, with large swathes underwater from Christmas until last month.

With waters finally subsiding, work has begun on preparing for the busy summer months.

Radio station Marlow FM, based at the riverside park, were forced to relocate temporarily when floodwater breached its studios.

MP Theresa May visited Longridge in February, with founder Amanda Foister saying offers of help from residents and business have poured in since the troubles began.
