For us Daniel it was keeping Christopher clean, now that he's 15 he has started to do what 15 yr olds do but usually in the privet of their own bedrooms, and because of this he rips his nappys and there is always a mess everywhere over him and this will happen up tp 7/8 times a day so with that and his normal washing and showering we would do it was a nightmare.

Hey Elaine didn't know you where in the same boat contact the Banbridge Leader and let them know they are butting abit in the paper about us.
Also contact your local Councillor it was Seamas Doyle who got Margaret Richie MLA involved and she got us put on the Critical care List which means they will bring water out to you if you need it.

Take care xxxx

Hi i was without water as well . The website was a nightmare to get any info on and then the timetable was given out that was a waste of time . I didnt go as long with out water . We had to go get our own water but you had to take bottles or things with you to fill . I dont drive so i wasnt able to do that and with my son being in wheelchair couldnt have done it so had to get someone to go buy me loads of water. Its still playing up a bit and as my son use's a big bath chair its been nightmare washing him like that as the water pressure is so low , so have had to bath him normally which isnt as easy at all. Just hope thats all the drama over with it all now

Hi Meagain
Thinking of you right now it really has been a Christmas to remember for all the wrong reasons.
Just heard the news there some scumbags vandalize a water tank in Coalisland that was put there for the ones without water and let all the water out.
Life's has been hard enough without these idiots
