Thursday 22 September, 7.30pm, Lewes Town Hall
For 15 years Lewes has been flood-free. But how long will this last? In the face of climate change and increased extreme weather 'events', how could we use nature to make our town more flood resilient? What can we each do in our streets and gardens to help? And is planting more trees the answer?
These are just some of the questions we'll be looking to discuss as part of our natural flood management initiative starting this autumn.
We're kicking off with 'The Big Lewes Flood Debate' on Thursday 22 September, 7.30pm, Lewes Town Hall. A guest panel of experts will be explaining the type of flood challenges Lewes faces; what measures they believe we need to be taking in response; outlining flood mitigation projects already underway; and explaining opportunities for local people to get involved.
There'll also be a Q&A session to put your questions to the experts and say what you believe Lewes should be doing to keep itself flood resilient.
We hope to follow up the debate with a series of activities over the autumn and winter, allowing anyone get involved in natural flood management in and around Lewes. Watch this space to learn more.
