Clearing Cumbria – The Clean Up Operation after Storms Desmond and Frank

After the devastation of Storm Desmond and Storm Frank Cumbria is now in a state of repair. The clean-up operation is in full swing as residents who had previously aimed to recover before Christmas, now try to start the New Year by returning to normality.

To help with the recovery process, a team from Feedback went up to Carlisle to join the clean-up process. Based in a supermarket, we were tasked with clearing the waste and soled products from the shop floor in preparation for the refit. On our way to the site our team were able to see first-hand the devastation caused by storm Desmond. Large areas of Carlisle were still without power, and the streets were strewn with family possessions and house contents. The brick work of buildings were stained by the water line from the previous few days. In some parts of the city, the water had reached three to four foot high.

Norris Castle. Located on the most northerly point of the Isle of Wight and the playground of royalty. It had become tired and fallen from its former glory and was due to go to market in the summer of 2015.

The Norris Castle job was a very special job to Feedback Atency. Not only did the job require all of our offerings including agricultural teams and our clearance operatives, it was undertaken across a beautiful 225 acre, Grade 1 listed plot in the Hampshire countryside.

In late June 2015, Feedback Atency was contacted by the executors of the Norris Castle Estate with regards to the clearance and disposal of the waste and other items from the main castle building. The aim of the project was to clear the castle to facilitate marketing of the estate by mid-July. The estate and castle building had fallen into faded glory. Much of the grounds were overgrown, and the castle rooms were full of waste and unloved items that needed to be disposed of.
