This is usually a national two-day event at Telford and Tim Farr and Jacky Huson attended in 2017 when Tim was invited to give a presentation on Southwell Flood Forum and be on a panel.

This year they are offering a series of webinars, the first of which is Creating Climate Resilient Places.

These digital sessions will take place from the first October 13th through to June 29th 2021 when the next face-to-face conference will take place in Telford.

We are delighted that Jacky Huson has been invited to join the panel representing a community group at the Flood and Coast Conference alongside other notable people in the flood world on October 13th.

It is a recognition of the hard work of volunteers and residents who have worked alongside the Risk Management Authorities to obtain support and the best possible outcome for reducing flood risk in our town.

It’s an ongoing project – long-term maintenance and sustainability is key for an enduring legacy of this work.
