Dear Jayne, Thank you for your email below and very kind remarks. I will of course pass on the thanks to the staff as requested. I would also like to take this opportunity to commend your Town Council for the superb efforts and commitment of everyone involved……..You were brilliant. This was a devastating and worrying time for the residents in Withernsea, but the community spirit they showed was unbelievable as people pulled together for the collective good of everyone. The Town Council provided a fantastic response working with me directly and Northern Gas Networks; and the care, support, commitment and manner in which you supported the community was something you should all be very proud of. A great team effort and yes Alan Bravey will be co-ordinating a lessons learned from the incident as we always can learn and get better from such experiences. Thank you Regards John Skidmore Director of Corporate Strategy & Commissioning East Riding of Yorkshire Council County Hall Beverley HU17 9BA 01482 396000
