Following the floods at the end of last year, Willingham Parish Council are currently reinforcing their existing flood plan.
One of the routes the Council is looking at will be possibly forming a small flood management team and recruiting residents to act as neighbourhood support volunteers.
It is hoped to be able to divide the village into zones so that when a risk of flood is highlighted, the management team would be activated and would co-ordinate the neighbourhood support volunteers. The volunteers would notify residents in a particular zone at risk of flooding and distribute advisory information where appropriate. By dividing the village this way, it is hoped that more people can be reached but in order to achieve this, volunteers will be needed to support the plan.
If you would like to be involved as either a member of the management team or as a neighbourhood support volunteer or would like more information then please forward your details to the Parish Clerk on firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01954 261027
