Work to improve Southwell’s flood resilience is being celebrated at a free event at Southwell Library on 11 March, 6.00pm – 8.30pm.  The event, open to all residents, will showcase the work undertaken by Southwell Flood Forum, National Flood Forum, Trent Rivers Trust and Nottinghamshire County Council as part of the FRAMES project ‘Improving Flood Resilience in Southwell’.

Presentations will be given on natural flood management techniques, resilience projects with the wider community, the Road Closure Scheme, flooding events of the past year and the Sustainable Urban Drainage System that has been installed at Lowes Wong School and its contribution to reducing flood risk.

Residents will be able to speak to all the partners involved in the FRAMES project, funded by INTERREG North Sea Region European Regional Development Fund and Nottinghamshire County Council, before it draws to a close at the end of March.

There will also be chance to win a free 134ltr water-butt with planters worth £100.  The water-butt not only stores water for plants, it is also designed to capture excess water and slowly release it into the drainage system over time so that the drainage system is not over-whelmed.
