Lancashire Drop In Sessions

The Flood Advisory Service attended several drop in sessions for local communities across Lancashire throughout February.

These included in Parbold, Lancaster, Wyre, Chorley, Ormskirk, Leyland, Padiham, Whalley and Irwell Vale.

The drop in sessions were organised to support local residents following the devastating winter storms which led to flooding throughout Lancashire and the North West.


Rachel Compton, Flood Risk Manager at Lancashire County Council, said: 

"Knowing the number of events across the north of England that your team was trying to cover at the same time as ours, all partners were very impressed at how flexible the FAS proved to be and how committed in helping us with all our events – even when we inadvertently ended up with two on the same day.

In the drop-in sessions, our residents were very reassured and even inspired by your personal approach and your advice, to find that they aren't alone and that the concerns they have for their property are 'normal' and may even have simple solutions. We were particularly pleased at the connections we were all able to make regarding kite-marked products and the Safer Trader scheme, and to the Flood Resilience Grant information also available at the events"
