The image below shows Bishop David visiting Wainfleet at the time of the flooding that occurred there earlier this year.

Speaking at the time, Bishop David commented: “It was good to see both the Emergency Faith Responders and the local church playing their part, along with all the other voluntary and statutory agencies, in responding to the flood and seeking to put their faith into action in practical ways for the people of Wainfleet.”
