Business as usual for Andrews Sykes this Christmas

Those hoping for a white Christmas this year will once again be disappointed with forecasters suggesting that December 25 will be a dreary wet day for most of the UK!

The news has been coupled with the Met Office issuing a series of flood warnings across the country with the South West likely to be the worst-hit area. We’re now in the darkest week of the calendar year with heavy rain and cold weather expected to strike nationwide.

Meteorologists have even gone as far as suggesting that imminent downpours and gales present a ‘threat to life’ and that businesses in the affected regions are at risk.

More than twenty flood warnings are currently in place less than a week before Christmas and there are fears that heavy rainfall could have serious of implications for millions of people in England and Wales.

This is not the first time that devastating weather has threatened to cause havoc over the festive period after the infamous flooding of 2015 left much of the North in a state of chaos.

On that occasion, Sykes Pumps was on hand to mobilise hundreds of pumps sourced from our depots across the country and ensure they were deployed in the worst-hit areas.

At a time when most companies are closed during what is usually a quiet period, we were fully operational and able to respond to tackle an emergency that could have caused havoc on a monumental scale. This year will be no different.

Once again, our engineers will be on call throughout Christmas and the New Year to ensure our customers are protected no matter what the circumstances.
