- Please use the RBC contact details below so that your call can be correctly logged and information shared with our teams.
- RBC do not deliver sandbags to commercial businesses.
- Be aware that during a flood event the road network may flood which can mean access and the delivery of sandbags to homes may not be possible therefore being prepared in advance is vital.
- Check if you have a local flood resilience store in your area operated by local Town and Parish Councils as you may be able to obtain sandbags during an event from this location.
