The event, which is being held on Tuesday, 2 December 2014 at the Watson Hall in Tewkesbury, offers people the opportunity to find out about the different grants available, and to chat through any concerns or ideas. Members of the public are invited to drop in at any time between 3pm and 5.30pm.
Representatives from the Environment Agency, Gloucestershire County Council’s Civil Protection team, Tewkesbury Borough Council, Gloucestershire Rural Community Council and the Flood Memories team from the University of the West of England will be present to provide advice and support where possible.
A free workshop will also be held between 6pm and 8pm where members of the public are invited to join in with others to put together a community emergency plan for their local area. The workshop will offer ideas and suggestions for what might work for your local area – and there will also be the opportunity to gain some practical tips.
