The Flood Advisory Service Roadshow in York

The Flood Advisory Service held a busy and successful roadshow in York yesterday. The trailer was hosted on Morrisons Car Park, Foss Islands Road, which was fitting as the store became a community hub for residents when the floods hit back in December.

Joined by representatives from City of York Council, Make it York and the Environment Agency, we welcomed local residents on board the trailer for advice on everything flood related, from how to flood proof homes to sources of funding available, and to how to assess whether a home or business is a flood risk.

Steve Wragg, City of York Council Flood Risk Manager, said: "Our work with the Flood Advisory Service has given us a fantastic opportunity to invite all those affected in the Boxing Day floods to come along to see, feel and experience flood resilience and resistance products at first hand. Through this many people realise that they can take steps to make their homes and businesses better prepared for future flooding and we have worked with the Flood Advisory Service and partners to ensure everyone left better informed of their options.

The Flood Advisory Service trailer provides an impressive, spacious and flexible home for the day and when deployed into the heart of a flooded community it allows easy access to residents and businesses."

Andrew Burnard, who visited the trailer on behalf of his daughter, said “I think this is a very good initiative."
