Flood Surgery, Brookside Practice, 28th September, 6-8pm

If heavy rain and news of flash flooding bring back unpleasant memories of July 2007 when many parts of Earley and Wokingham suffered from flooding, you may want to attend the Loddon Valley Residents' Association's drop in meeting at Brookside Surgery on Tuesday, 28th September.

The LVRA have arranged for representatives of the Environment Agency, Wokingham Borough Council, Partnership for Renewables, Earley Town Council, the National Flood Forum and Thames Water to be there.

The Enviromental Agency's website (http://maps.environment-agency.gov.uk) publishes a map showing areas at risk, residents of Lower Earley and Whitegates may be interested in the maps of Lower Earley and North Earley

If you'd like to know what you can do to protect your property, why Wokingham Borough Council withdrew £200,000 of funding meant for flood maintenance works, or ask Thames Valley Water what it's doing to solve the problems with the drains, or learn about plans to develop on flood plains in the area ( Hatch Farm, Rushey Mead wind farm, Shinfield SDL ) then we'd recommend you go along.

The drop in meeting is being held on Tuesday, 28th of September, at Brookside Church, Brookside Surgery, Earley, between 6-8pm in the evening.
