Grants available to help Herne Hill businesses still struggling after 2013 flood

Herne Hill businesses struggling to stay afloat following 2013’s devastating floods can now apply for grants after a recent £200,000 community contribution from Thames Water.

The flood occurred early in the morning on August 7, 2013, when a pipe burst and sent a waist-high wave of water across the Half Moon Lane area.

Many businesses, such as the Half Moon pub, closed for good, while others are still struggling due to the delay in receiving insurance money. The grants would help out businesses until their insurance comes through, at which point the money would be paid back to a community fund.

The fund, which has already been used to plant trees and create street art, will continue to be used to promote Herne Hill on an ongoing basis. Application and queries should be sent to business.support@southwark.gov.uk. Businesses in need of urgent help should apply by December 15.
