New conference will share knowledge on combatting flooding in Cambridgeshire
A new conference will aim to bring Cambridgeshire’s community flood groups together to share knowledge in combatting flooding.
'Cambridgeshire Flood Groups Conference Day: How we can work together to combat flooding' will take place on Thursday, September 22 and is aimed at the county’s community flood groups.
The conference, organised by Cambridgeshire County Council, will take place at The Club in Alconbury Enterprise Campus.
This will be a day to bring groups together, promote networking between groups and local authorities/organisations, and provide help and advice on the challenges we face with regard to flood risk across Cambridgeshire.
It will also aim to launch the council’s mentoring scheme where more established groups will offer knowledge sharing and mentorship to the newer-established groups in the county.
The day will include presentations in the morning and early afternoon from the Flood Risk team and the Environment Agency, and a workshop/practical exercise later in the afternoon. Additional speakers are still to be announced.
Tickets for the event, which will run from 10am – 5pm, are available here.
The full address of the venue is The Club in Alconbury Enterprise Campus, Alconbury Weald, Huntingdon PE28 4XA.
Limited parking will be available behind the club although delegates are urged to car share or use public transport.
Lunch and refreshments will be available.
